Rainforest Art School is an exhibition that will showcase a selection of works from the children that attended Katinka Gerber's art school in Arcadia over the past 23 years.
The Rainforest Art School has a very intimate atmosphere where art is created in small groups. Nature plays a major role in Katinka Gerber's artistic presentation and forms part of her art education and her visual observation. She uses art elements that the children understand and relate to.
As grown-ups we can never imitate the true sincere works of art that children create. They create within their own world. Through the spontaneous use of a variety of colours and lines, a unique balance is created.
Katinka Gerber studied for a pre-primary teacher (1980–1984), where she discovered the essence of children in their art world, which captivated her. Her dream is to open a children's art gallery, but for now her dream of exhibiting at the Pretoria Art Museum has come true.
