Arts Re­cy­cling Cen­tre’s classes prov­ing pop­u­lar

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - RICHARD MAYS

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.
