Art Safari @ Auckland Zoo – A one day drawing programme for children aged 8 years and over. Cost $90 including gst, materials and Zoo entry. 9.30am to 4pm; Auckland Zoo, Motions Road, Western Springs.
Sketching giraffes, characterising the monkeys or over-emphasising Burma’s wrinkles – it’s all part of the fun on “Art Safari”. We will spend the day exploring Auckland Zoo learning many different drawing techniques and skills on our explorations. Our focus will be on drawing the animals as much as their Zoo habitat. We will use numerous drawing mediums and each child will get their own sketching pad to record their studies and drawings – creating their own ‘explorer in the wilderness’ journal to take home with them. And we will fit an animal encounter into the day as well – could it be more pawfect! Enrol now!
