Welcome to the summer event from The University of Auckland’s Centre for Continuing Education.

The workshops on offer are a brilliant opportunity to begin 2015 in an invigorating and creative way. All workshops in the summer programme are delivered by experienced tutors who are inspirational teachers and passionate about their subject. Continuing Education staff will be on site to welcome you and assist you during the week.

Creative writing

If words are your passion, then bring your pen and paper or laptop and devote yourself to writing in one of the very popular creative writing and life writing workshops. These courses are designed to give you the confidence, motivation and skills to develop your inner voice, progress your current writing and plan your future work.

Whether you’re a beginning writer looking to discover new ideas, an experienced wordsmith with a novel on the go or somewhere in between, there will be plenty of opportunity to practise the techniques and skills explored in the interactive and hands-on sessions. You will be encouraged to explore, to experiment and to find your own voice in a friendly and supportive environment.

Art and photography

Our art courses provide the opportunity to extend your artistic boundaries in drawing, painting, sculpture and mixed media. Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced artist you will find our workshops a great place to learn new techniques, experiment and to extend your current practice.

Our art tutors all possess that wonderful combination of artistic talent and passion for teaching – they delight in sharing both their skills and their subject knowledge. Your talents will thrive in an environment of creativity and inventiveness.
