The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print.

Musocoal. Draw a musician as you listen

Megan from MEGANZ School of Visual Arts

Hi there, I have a new idea for a drawing workshop and would really like a show of hands as to who may like to attend? I need a minimum of 18 people to cover costs and get it running.
I thought it would be nice to hire a musician (for a change) to be our life-model and while they play we can listen and draw them.
There won't be a tutor at all, just come along with your drawing tools and paper, and away you go! Great drawing practice for the artists and a great time for the musicians to have a very attentive audience in front of them.
I would hire a different person, and musical instrument for each workshop - Keyboard, Cello, Violin, and Guitar.
I have penciled in 4 afternoons, spanning every two weeks over Term 3. The first one will be on Saturday 25th July - 2.30 - 4.30 pm, at -Te Whare Ora, 37 Uxbridge Road, Howick.
The other dates are - 8th & 22nd August & 5th Sept.
The cost of each two-hour workshop will be $20.00
The name Musocoal is put together from Music or Muso and Charcoal.
Also if I do achieve the workshop numbers, I will be looking for competent musicians to play and model for us, so if you know of someone who plays any of those instruments mentioned above, I would like to hear from them. I would pay for your time.
I realize 2 hours is a long time to play but they wouldn't have to play all the time, they could just sit still at different times throughout it. We will have breaks as well. Probably softer music would be appropriate.
If you are interested in trying your hand at drawing a musician while they played please let me know and I will place your name on the list.
Cheers

Hi neighbours.
Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."
