There will be plenty of colour and fun at East Taieri over
the school holidays.
The Cave Art Studio is holding its popular holiday art
''It went very well last year. We were fully booked,''
schoolteacher and artist Cheryl Pearson said.
''I'm hoping to hold classes right through the school
holidays, if there's the demand.''
The classes were aimed at 5- to 12-year-olds and the emphasis
was on fun, Mrs Pearson said.

mask-making. It's for any children who enjoy art. They don't

early on, but it's generally for any children who like doing
Classes started on Monday this week and are being held from
9.30am-12.30pm daily until May2.
''If children have got the motivation, it's easy to teach
them the skills and techniques. I think you can teach anybody
to do art. And children's art is so inspiring.''
