August: Artarama

Festival of student art

Instigated in 1979 by founding member Dick Logan, in conjunction with the Aigantighe Art Gallery, ARTARAMA has, for decades, consistently represented the artwork of thousands of year 1-13 students from our South Canterbury region. As well as promoting to the schools and donating prizes, our club supports the gallery staff with volunteers to hang and take down each year's exhibition.

Artworks are not sold as this is purely a community service and not a fundraiser. ARTARAMA is also supported with prizes and awards from: The Friends of Aigantighe; Waihi School,  South Canterbury Art Society; ARA Polytechnic, and Warehouse Stationery.
