Call­out to artists

Central Leader - - NEWS -

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.
