Staying positive during the coronavirus lockdown and everything cancelled

Silke from Heart for Art

Like most businesses in New Zealand we’ve shut our studio for the countrywide Coronavirus lockdown. We’re all reeling a bit, like you probably are, not quite sure what the future will look like.

We’re all reeling a bit, like you probably are, not quite sure what the future will look like. We have faith in our country and our people though so we’re confident we’ll all rally and get through this. We’re good at being strong together when it counts, let's keep that going.

That of course means all our March and April events are cancelled. If you had tickets booked to any of our events, or a private booking, you’ll be able to reschedule to any future events or another date that suits, once everything gets back to normal. We’ll be in touch with all of you as soon as we can. Gift vouchers will still be available throughout the lockdown.

We’re also committed to sharing lots of uplifting, inspirational content with you to keep you smiling during your lockdown.

As an event based business, we’re really grateful for your continued support during this crazy time. Your support will help us get through this and hopefully help our business survive.

Keep physically and mentally healthy everyone. We look forward to painting with you soon.

Regards and blessings
