Yes, I'm just around the corner from you.
I have been running my studio-based art school since 2007 for students aged between 9 to adults. I enjoy teaching drawing, painting, mixed media, and sculpture. Students can work at their own pace, on themes of their choice, and begin from their own level of ability and start any time throughout the term.
The students have been working with the theme of 'Transport' to get us all started for this term.
So hope to hear from you soon and meet you once this lockdown drops a level.
You can check out my website for details at www.vizart.co.nz... and while you're there click on the Instagram icon to take a look at our student's work.

Hey neighbours,
are you using the long weekend to tackle that long-over due reno? Or do you have a project you'd love to do in your home or garden but don't know where to start?

The experts at Resene are offering to help answer all your painting and decorating questions. Whether it's how to choose the right type of paint to cover a stain, how to go about planning a mural, or how long you really need to spend on sanding down that woodwork, they're happy to help.

Send us your question at homed@stuff.co.nz or leave it in the comments and we'll put the best questions to the Resene team (please note: we may not be able to answer every single question). The answers will be published in an article on Stuff ahead of the long weekend.

If you don't want us to use your comment or name on Stuff, please mention that in your post.
