Visarts summary to the 21st August


Kia ora koutou,

Many of us in this community were saddened to hear of the sudden and unexpected passing of Judy Scothern this month. A caring and inspirational figure whose contribution to Art Education is significant and whose guidance was much valued.


Thank you to all those who have been responding to requests for help, ideas, suppliers or affirmation that others are on the right track.
