Express Yourself, De-Stress Yourself

creative workshops for 17-25 (ish) year olds, Term 2 2015

This group has had an awesome start to the year in a new location – the Campbell Free Kindergarten building in Victoria Park. They have created land art, learned to drum, and are now exploring mindful photography. Along the way thay’ve grown some great connections and had heaps of fun together.

For next term, the group has highlighted some areas they are keen to explore further – dance/circus, craft and sculpture – so that’s what they’re scheduling, with plenty of space for people to choose their own areas of interest.

Please help us spread the word about these workshops to any young people in this age range who you think may benefit from the course. Details are below and on the attached flier:

When: Mondays 1-3 pm, 20 April-29 June (no class Anzac Day or Queen’s Birthday)
Where: Campbell Free Kindergarten, 203-271 Victoria Street West, Victoria Park, Auckland CBD
Cost: FREE
