Four female artists from diverse cultural backgrounds living in Auckland collaborate to teach a wide range of original practices that offer opportunities of self -development in one’s individual art practice. Each artist will host two, four consecutive weekly classes within the eight weeks where people can learn the artist skills and techniques on how to draw, paint and create with sewn textile fibre art. Each participant will be encouraged to explore and express the wonderment of ART through a wide range of mediums . Through discovery and play one uncovers personal jewels that lay beneath the surface. 

32 art classes taught within an eight-week period during October, November and December 2020 with an art exhibition of the collective art pieces on Saturday December 5, 2020, all taking place at the Ardmore Community Hall. Adults 18+. Art Supplies are not included.

Thursdays: 10:30 pm– 2:30 pm – Nicky Hartly – Human Figure Exploration

Our intended outcome is to establish a vibrant community-based ART Collective Project devoted to the recreational & professional pursuit of diverse art forms that make an impact on people’s lives and encourage participants to take time to nurture, allow, explore and expand one’s uniqueness in high quality art experiences.By gathering communities together from diverse cultures we support our engaged artists and develop a vibrant art scene where creativity is encouraged and emotional and mental wellness is supported.
