Art + Festival
The inaugural Birkenhead Primary Art plus festival in 2017 was such a big success that we are hoping this was the first of many.
The exhibition was filled with 100s of high quality children's collaborative artworks, exhibited alongside the work of over 40 national artists. The weekend kicked off with a formal Gala night and live auction on the Friday night.
During the daytime, families could peruse the art, participate in an art workshop and enjoy delicious food while listening to live entertainment. It was an amazing weekend for all involved, raising over $25,000 for the school.
"The Gala night was mind blowing! Lots of amazing art. Well worth it - come down and check out the exhibit and pick up some artistic vibes - now the owners of a beautiful Yana Meech art work" - Wilma Coleman
"Such an amazing event all round. I was impressed with the standard of the children's exhibited artwork which looked so good alongside such a vast selection of well known NZ artists" - Anna Hill
"Awesome workshop! I was challenged, out of my comfort zone, delighted, excited and triumphant. I loved it! I created my own press print. What a great opportunity for me to do some art. What a treat. Highly recommend them!" - Sarah Bartlett
