How does the AHE Art Exhibition work?

The AHE Art Exhibition is a chance to enjoy each other’s artistic creations and be inspired. Each year we have a theme (e.g. New Zealand Nature; Myths, Legends and Fairy Tales; Cultures of the World…). Children of any age may enter. Each child will receive a participation certificate.

What kind of art work is allowed?

Pretty much anything, we think!  Drawings, painting, collage, sculpture, photography, craft….


Each participant may enter up to a maximum of TWO categories.

2D – 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 – any artwork that is three dimensional. For example: clay sculpture, papier-mâché, painted rocks, wire sculpture, masks, models, carving, dolls, jewellery.

Photography – Display a single photo or a collection on a poster or free standing board.

Wearable Art – Art you can wear.

Story Illustration – create a story or comic that you illustrate or illustrate someone else’s story.


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).


The cost is $5 AHE member ($15 non-member) per category per person.
Maximum cost per family is $15 (AHE members only; this covers one entry per child).
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


  • Art work that is submitted was made this calendar year.
