AHE ends the year with the Art Exhibition in Term 4. Held at the very accessible and easy to find Te Tuhi Art Gallery in Pakuranga, it’s a lovely way to celebrate our children’s creativity. Each year we have a theme (2016 was Countries and Cultures of the World; 2015 was New Zealand Nature).
Friday 10 November 2017, 9.30 am – 12.00 pm

How does the AHE Art Exhibition work?
The AHE Art Exhibition is a chance to enjoy each other’s artistic creations and be inspired. This year there won’t be formal judging, but a ‘People’s Choice Vote’ for each category with some lovely prizes. Each child will receive a participation certificate (and a chocolate bar). Children of any age may enter.
This year we’ll be having an Art Demonstration:
What kind of art work is allowed?
Pretty much anything, we think! Drawings, painting, collage, sculpture, photography, craft….
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! We have a new category this year:
ILLUSTRATE YOUR OWN STORY (or COMIC)!
This year’s theme (Myths, Legends and Fairytales) lends itself to story-telling. So write and illustrate a short story, create a picture book or design your own comic.
Each participant may enter up to a maximum of TWO categories.
2D – that’s anything that can be displayed on a flat surface, such as card or canvas. For example: painting, sketching, etching, crayon and dye, collage, cartoon, pastels, printmaking etc or a mix.
3D and Craft this is any art work that is three dimensional. For example: clay sculpture, papier-mâché, painted rocks, wire sculpture, masks, models, carving, dolls, jewellery.
Photography – that’s pretty straightforward. You take photos and display them!
Wearable Art – for the truly courageous! Art you can wear!
Illustrate your own Story (new category) – create a story or comic that you illustrate.
You may enter one art work OR you may enter multiple, up to the size of a display board (such as used for a Science Fair – able to be purchased at stationery shops).
If you enter 3D or Craft you may use up to half a trestle table (approx 1 m). If you need more, let the organising team know.
The cost is $5 AHE member/$10 non-member per category per person.
Maximum cost per family is $15 AHE member/$30 non-member.
Should your child wish to enter more than one category then you will need to pay for an extra entry.
Please pay to AHE a/c 12-3011-0543821-00. Use name and Art as reference; also add number of children e.g. x2
PLEASE ENSURE THAT:
- Art work that is submitted was made this calendar year.
- Any assistance that the child has received with their art work must be acknowledged (see Entrant’s Form which will be sent to you when you register and will be given to judges).
Generally, tracing and copying is not acceptable. If this is done, it must be acknowledged. If you have any questions, please contact Monica at email@example.com.
