Arts in Oxford has completed construction of the first of four planned artist’s workshops which will enable Arts in Oxford to offer courses and other opportunities to both Oxford residents and the wider Canterbury community.
The first courses planned for the new facility will include drawing into painting, watercolour painting, paint-making from local pigments and jewellery-making and are planned to begin in May. Initially the workshop space will be utilised by Christchurch artist Judy Rogers with her sculpture ‘Heart is Where the Home Is’.
