I'll be teaching students to paint the attached image in oils and acrylics, then we'll make plastercine mouse figures that students can draw from different angles. In the school holidays or term two I'll teach the students to create their own cartoon characters which they will write a little story about and make their own original little book to take home!
Cost of course is $250 per student.
(all materials included)
Time: 3.30-5.30pm Tuesdays
Address: Haitaitai Bowling Club
(157 Haitaitai Road)

From Sunday 26 January 2020, Metlink will have some refreshed bus timetables.
Metlink’s Wellington network will be under pressure at this time of year, therefore you might not get your first choice of bus during morning peak. Know before you go. Ensure you are prepared with a back-up plan if you need to be somewhere urgently.

You deserve a reliable bus network and we’re working hard to make that happen. We are refreshing some timetables based on passenger boarding data to lay a solid foundation to build on, match available driver and bus resources due to the ongoing national driver shortage and work to improve reliability. Check what’s happening in your area by visiting www.metlink.org.nz...

We apologise if you’re affected by any disruption to your service. Stay up-to-date by subscribing to My Metlink, download the Metlink app or call the team on 0800 801 700. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
