Each child feels more confident about themselves as a learner when they experience success. Tutors provide positive interaction, certificates are awarded and centre-wide celebration is given when students move up a level.

Creative Surge Under Lockdown

Covid19 may have shut down the country, but the lockdown stirred up a passion for creativity among tens of thousands of Kiwis.

The upside to the lockdown saw online stores servicing creative activities experience a record explosion of online sales as Kiwis got down and got busy exploring their creative side

While some may have couch surfed endless Netflix shows, many others were busy developing their skills painting, knitting, embroidering, exploring crafts, or endlessly trying to bake the perfect sourdough loaf.

The creative arts surged as Kiwi artists embraced their creative sides to overcome the potential boredom of being stuck at home.

What was old was new again as painting, puzzles, photography,gardening, knitting and baking were among the hobbies that countless New Zealanders embraced.

The Estuary Arts "Covid Collective - Creative Life Under Lockdown 2020" exhibition opens this weekend and will run for four weeks till July 12

The exhibition features works created under lockdown from artists throughout the region, expressing their creative mood while confined to their homes.
