Callout to artists
Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki is calling all budding art stars to create their own stellar works to match those hanging on the gallery walls during its family holiday workshops.
In January the gallery will be offering the opportunity to explore original artworks, experiment with materials and share ideas and inspiration with others in programmes designed for children aged 5-13.
The programmes include a workshop incorporating dance, drama and music and a merchandising art lab.
Additional free family drop-in and drawing sessions throughout the month are designed for adults but are open to everyone to explore their creative sides through their own works of art.
The new drawing sessions are designed to bring out the social side of sketching through drawing games.
Artists should bring an imagination to the sessions but no previous drawing experience is required.
Advanced booking is needed for children’s classes because all materials are provided.
