Arts Week

Arts Week at Massey High School opened with a visit from former MHS student and Art Teacher, Cora-Allan Wyckliffe who was recently awarded the 2021 McCahon House Residency Award.

Senior art, photography and DVC students were able to hear Cora-Allan talking about her artistic practice and her journey to becoming a fully professional artist. 

Students gained valuable insights into Cora-Allan’s artwork which in recent years has been based on reviving the traditional Niuean art form of hiapo. 

In 2020 Cora-Allan won the Creative New Zealand Pacific Heritage Artist award and her exhibitions have been widely acclaimed throughout Aotearoa and internationally including Australia, Niue, England and Canada.
