Love of art encouraged
Creative students are being recognised for their efforts in a bid to encourage a life-long love affair with visual arts.
Secondary school art students from Onehunga High School, Epsom Girls Grammar, Mt Roskill Grammar School, Auckland Grammar School and Mt Albert Grammar were were among the recipients of Auckland Art Gallery’s annual Pat Hanly Art Student Awards on September 3.
The students were nominated by their teachers for their commitment and passion for the visual arts.
They will receive a one-year free membership to the Friends of the Gallery, which gives them concession rates to paid exhibitions and invitations to exclusive tours.
Mt Roskill Grammar’s Conrad Wolfgramm and Auckland Grammar’s Nicholas Peek also received sponsorship from the Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust.
