Arts Recycling Centre’s classes proving popular
Former Canterbury portrait artist Frank Callear has surfaced in Palmerston North ready to pass on his considerable talents and experience.
Callear’s eight-week evening portraiture classes with the Arts Recycling Centre start at Square Edge on Friday 30.
They follow on from the Beginners Painting & Drawing Courses run by Feilding-born artist Georgia Lambert, who would also be running after school art programme for over 11s, and an intensive school holiday programme.
Lambert said she fell in love with the centre’s recently upgraded gallery space.
The irony is that her art classes have proved so popular, the artist has been moved upstairs into a larger Square Edge studio.
ARC’s Amba Wright is also offering school holiday craft and hobby workshops in making useful items out of plastic shopping bags, as well as providing classes in fancy ‘‘hair-ups’’ for young people.
The courses all carry modest fees to cover incidentals and materials, but there are some spaces available at a special rate for those who qualify as disadvantaged.
The full list of classes and costs is available by calling ARC on 353 2802.
