I would love to see my art students back for our Term 4 art development courses and hope to see a few new faces here as well. As soon as we are informed as to what is happening, I will let you know when you can come along and join us to learn how to do that drawing or paint that beautiful painting or create a fantastic sculpture.

Only 6 more sleeps to go until our art classes start again.
So be in quick. Our courses are there for people from absolute beginner to intermediate ability. From ages 9 through to adults.
Our focus is on drawing, painting, and sculpture, as these are great disciplines that inform each other. But you can choose to focus on one of them if you like.
The art development course projects are student and tutor-initiated, which means we follow you and your ideas and exploration and show you techniques along the way. And we also stop the class on occasion to show specific techniques to the whole group.
Classes run after school and on Saturday mornings from - Megan Murphy's home studio, a local artist.
The school has been running since 2007 and we are proud to say we have had students who have stayed with us for up to 5 years.
Check out more details about the courses on - www.vizart.co.nz...
Contact Megan. We would love to see you here.
