MESSAGE FROM NZ NATIONAL EMERGENCY AGENCY
To all of us in New Zealand .. now more than ever, we are depending on each other. Remember .. where we stay tonight WE MUST stay from now on. You must only be in physical contact with those you are living with. Lets all do our bit to unite against this Coronovirus .. Kia Kaha
MESSAGE FROM THE ASSOCIATION MANAGEMENT
On an unprecedented day in history, Today let us come together to share our love and support for each other and for those of us who need our care, help and support.
Now more than ever is the time to remind ourselves, in our little bubbles, of those who don’t have the freedom, luxury and blessings that we take for granted and those of us who are lonely, sick or worse.
Its time now that we all act together, because we DO NOT have the luxury nor can we afford to think selfishly about ourselves. We have to come together as ONE to survive this crisis.  We will succeed as One Community with unconditional love, kindness and blessings for all and each other now and forever into the future.
Remember … Health & Safety is our Community Number 1 Priority

Don McAra – New Zealand Artist

Don1

“I will be teaching how to apply washes, how tone plus colour gives “value”;, colour mixing, how to work for colour harmony, etc. Good drawing is the underpinning of representational and romantic- realist painting, so I shall teach linear and atmospheric perspective, drawing both with pencil and with brush. I will introduce the class to wet on dry overlaying, but also to wet in wet style, to suit the subject matter. We will start with simple subject matter and move towards more complex. Working from still life subjects is invaluable as all the above can come together Iin such work. I also hope that when we are ready we can try portrait painting in water colour. I intend to gear the rate of our lessons to the needs of the participants. Later I shall encourage you to bring individually chosen photos, but to begin with we can all work from the same photo to ensure we can master the basics together. I hope the class will feel free to ask questions at all times. ”

I’ve decided to do this because I was well taught the basics when I was much younger, and think it is time for me to pass what I have learned on. Also it is a good opportunity to raise funds for a charity I am involved with. This involves working on a heritage tram project at Ferrymead to which I have been contributing for some time. I look forward to share my painting experience with you all, Regards Don.
