Holiday Arts Classes

December 17, 2001


Holiday Arts Classes For Children, Teenagers And Adults


Top artists are teaching Artstation’s summer holiday workshops in pinhole and experimental photography, jewellery-making, scratch film, puppetry, mosaic, sculpture, and siapo woodcut.

These workshops and more are available in December and January for children and teenagers at Artstation, Auckland City’s community arts facility in Ponsonby.

Artstation’s programme organiser Kathy Waghorn says, “I planned the workshops with the idea of extending children by providing the same tutors and subjects open to adults. However, the classes are tailored to capture children’s imaginations and are pitched in an appropriate way.”

Artstation has been lucky to secure workshops with some of New Zealand’s leading artists and craft practitioners. New Zealand-based Samoan artist Fatu Feu’u is teaching siapo woodcut – a contemporary approach to creating pacific woodcut prints. Valeska Campion, renowned for large-scale mosaic projects (most recently her Vodafone advertisement), is presenting two mosaic workshops. The scratch film workshop draws from the methods pioneered by New Zealand artist Len Lye, where his ideas have been reinterpreted by Prue Cunningham, a recent graduate of the Elam School of Fine Arts.

Adults don’t miss out either. There are January workshops in painting and drawing with artists Sue Daly and Jane Zusters, mosaics with Valeska Campion and cast glass with glass artist Jo Nuttal.

The workshops run on the following dates, but you will need to contact Artstation (ph 376 3221) to register and for more information about the courses.
- Children and teenagers: December 19 to 21, January 14 to 18, January 21 to 25. Prices range from $45 to $120.
- Adults: January 7 to 11. They cost $200.

Gordon Campbell : On Dealing With Impeccable, Impeachable Lies

By now, the end game the Republican Senate majority has in mind in their setting of the rules for the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump is pretty clear to everyone: first deny the Democrats the ability to call witnesses and offer evidence, and then derisively dismiss the charges for lack of evidence. For his part, does former security adviser John Bolton really, really want to testify against his former boss? If there was any competing faction within the Republican Party, there might be some point for Bolton in doing so – but there isn’t. More>>
