Doggy Drawing Day Success!

Doggy Drawing Day Success!

The Doggy Drawing Day proved to be a great success with artists of all ages taking advantage of the opportunity to draw from the 4-legged life models. The gallery was packed, and there were so many wonderful drawings! And the models behaved beautifully too!

Hunter Animal Rescue benefited from the generous donations of food, toys and cash.

Hopefully we can do it again one day!

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019, 4:00pm - 5:30pm

During the weekly art classes the children are introduced to a variety of media and techniques, both 2D and 3D. By providing them with knowledge of materials and techniques, they are more able to make choices in ways to express their own creative ideas.

The language of art is also introduced to enable the children to convey their thoughts and feelings about their own work and the work of others.

Tuesdays: 4 – 5.30pm

Wednesdays: 4 – 5.30pm

Classes are limited to 10 students.

Cost: $180 / 10 week term. All materials are supplied.
