These summer holidays
We draw jigsaws of the sea floor
Come and join us in celebrating all the weird and wonderful creatures that live in the ocean and draw your very own underwater jigsaw puzzle to take home and keep.
Fabulous fish, shimmering seahorses, colourful coral, twirling turtles, wonderful whales, soaring seabirds and so much more. The Kermadec region, located between the North Island and Tonga, is home to all sorts of different kinds of ocean dwelling creatures. In 2011 nine artists were invited by Pew Environment Group to travel up to the Kermadecs on board HMNZS Otago. The voyage inspired them to create the amazing artworks that are being shown in our exciting new art exhibition ‘Hands to Bathe; Imagining a Kermadec Ocean Sanctuary’.
These holidays you too can be inspired by the Kermadecs and create an ocean picture to draw onto a pre-cut puzzle, which you can then take home and challenge your friends and family to put back together again.
