Celebrating International Day of Older Persons with free community art workshops!
Celebrating the International Day of Older Persons (1 October 2011), From Bauhaus to Your House is a series of four FREE one day modern art and craft workshops supported by Auckland Council and presented at four north Auckland community arts facilities, exclusively for a limited number of older and retired people.
Attendees at these FREE workshops will learn about their artist-teachers making practice and spend time sharing experiences, creating a small artwork and learning a new skill! This is a fantastic opportunity for older and retired people of all abilities to learn from established professional artists in an age friendly environment, so don’t miss out – numbers are limited to 15 per workshop. Art materials, tea and coffee will be supplied. Make sure to bring a packed lunch.
