West Auckland photographer Edith Amituanai MNZM presents a series of portraits made with Year 11 art students at Kelston Girls College through the Ministry of Education’s Creatives in Schools initiative. 

Using ideas of identity and self as a departure point, Year 11 art students made wearable three-dimensional sculptures that relate to the body. Alongside their art classes, the students were undertaking a Level 1 English assessment where they developed a dramatic monologue.

The Ministry of Education’s Creatives in Schools initiative gives schools and artists the opportunity to jointly apply for funding for artists to work directly with students.
