Lily Laita Art Teacher at Western Springs College
"I brought out a year 13 Art History class to the McCahon house in line with the Modern New Zealand Art topic they were studying. The students and myself and colleague were in awe at the location, the authenticity, the presentation of the film and the overall experience of being present in a place that was such an influence on his cubist works and works on loose canvas. We will have a year 12 +13 Art History class next year, so will definitely be returning for another visit in 2013. The Artist in Residence was approachable and well received by the students"
