Youth Art Exhibition

Date: Dec 13 – Mar 14Space: Small Gallery

We have a special opportunity for young creatives during National Seaweek in March, the 2024 Seaweek Youth Art Exhibition.  Young creatives can create an ocean inspired art work and see it on display in the Small Gallery at CAN.  It could be a painting, drawing, sculpture, photograph, printmaking or mixed media, all mediums are welcome and encouraged.  With three age categories and six fantastic prizes to be won, anyone aged 5 – 16 is welcome to enter.

Collect an entry form from CAN or the National Aquarium of NZ for all the details!

An opening celebration will be held on Friday 1st March, coinciding with the opening of “Out of the Blue” an exhibition featuring ocean inspired works by HB artists.

Leading into the exhibition, we are holding two FREE kids workshops at CAN, giving young artists the opportunity to come and work on their Seaweek piece for the exhibition.  Youth tutor Dallas Wilcox will be on hand offer guidance and advice, and there will be some materials available.  There is no need to register for these workshops, come along with your child between 1-4pm on Saturday and Sunday 24th and 25th February.

As always, please email bookings@thecan.co.nz with any questions.

We look forward to receiving & exhibiting your ocean inspired artwork for Seaweek 2024!
