 "Creative Children Ensure Creative Communities"     

The New Zealand Children's Art House Foundation Trust
was established in 1999 to assist the establishment and
development of Children's Art Houses within the communities of New Zealand.
NZCAHF believes it is a fundamental right and necessity
for children to explore their creativity within safe,
valued community projects

What would you think about a club where the only rules are
"to love art and to be kind to each other?"
Where everyone must follow these rules,
including teachers and parents!
These are the rules of the
New Zealand Children's Art Houses

Children's Art Houses come
in all shapes and sizes

Children's arts events, festivals,
carnivals, exhibitions, craft days, fundraisers,
musicals, dramas, are wide ranging


Newsletter From the National Director
                                Shona Hammond Boys 
The New Zealand Children`s Art House Foundation is delighted to be working with our Children’s Art Clubs and local schools preparing for the International Child Art Foundations 5th World Children’s Art Olympiad modelling the theme  A CREATIVE MIND IN A HEALTHY  BODY. The Opotiki Childrens Art House has been the film set for our National Showcase contribution to this world event.                                                              

The movie OKU MOE MOEA THE DREAM WHICH IS BIGGER THAN I AM is written and directed by Shona Hammond Boys following her book of the same name. This book will be launched in Parliament in March. Countless volunteer hours by many talented people have gone into this production and it is expected to be premiered in Opotiki before screening in Washington DC USA in JULY 2015.

We look forward to the opening of the Rotorua Children`s Art House this year in the beautiful historic Gardener’s cottage in the Government gardens. Many Children’s Art houses have big plans for rebuilding, extending and gathering new staff. Every Art House and Art Club is different. Every Artist is special and different but we are all in the same picture. We love Art and We are kind.

 Thank you for your contribution to our wonderful Foundation supporting the Individual Artistic Experiences of our Creative Children.

We grow a creative nation from our children upwards. They are our supreme innovators and our best force forward.                                                                                              On Wednesday the 25th of March the Book, Oku Moe Moea -The dream which is bigger than I am, was launched in parliament This book and a film will be presented at the World Children's Festival in Washington DC in July 2015.
