Rita Angus: Life & Vision opened with a flourish at the Auckland Art Gallery this weekend. We had huge numbers of people through the door showing just how popular this touring exhibition from Te Papa is.

After leaving on Friday from a packed media preview and a vibrant opening for the exhibition it was fantastic to come back on Monday morning to find these images from our Kids Club tutor, Kate Sellar. They show the children's responses to Rita Angus: Life & Vision, and in particular, Portrait of Betty Curnow from this weekends Kids Club workshop.

These were done by children ages 5 to 10 years of age, how amazing, I don't think I could have done a better job at capturing the character of the painting.
