Chance for students to turn photo negatives into positive exam results
Stressed out about exams? Artstation is offering a practical photography workshop these school holidays to help students preparing exam portfolios. The workshop is one of many options offered in Artstation’s exciting holiday art programme.
The programme runs from 20 September to 1 October and caters for children aged between 5 and 17 years.
A range of two and three dimensional art activities are on offer including sculpture, drawing and painting, making a camera and learning about photography, designing clothes for dolls and an ‘Open Arts Studio’ holiday art club. There are also workshops in Cast Glass and Concrete sculpture for teenagers.
Once back to school, children have the opportunity to continue their art interests by attending after school “Art Club” or Saturday classes. These concentrate on building their confidence while developing skills in a variety of art media and techniques.
Artstation engages practising artists and experts in their fields to tutor the children. The sessions are process and skills based and offer a variety of media in a professional studio situation. Tutors encourage learning through a range of fun activities. They identify each child’s unique skills and differences and provide individual support and feedback.
Artstation, Auckland City’s community visual arts facility, is located at the old police barracks, 1 Ponsonby Rd, Newton. It is easy to get to by public transport with the Link’s ‘Artstation’ bus stop right outside.\
