CHILDREN'S ART HOUSES
NZCAHF prefers to own stand-alone permanent buildings on common ground. There are many examples of beginning Children’s Art Houses. Some buildings are home garages, railway station carraiges, rented cabins or flats. These buildings require income to pay rent. Members work to use their talents and interests to acquire funds to buy their own Children’s Art House. NCAHF work alongside them to seek partners in community who understand how important a Children’s Art House is to a community and how vital to a child.
NZCAHF believe Children’s Art Houses are as valuable as library, museum or churches. We encourage local authorities, service clubs, corporations and businesses to back the children’s deep dreams of a warm, safe, secure place especially for their art endeavours and their wishes to understand themselves and their future possibilities. We encourage Children’s Art Houses to make positive contributions of art back to the community.
“I am a life time member. I think that the Art House is very inspiring. I’ve seen how peoples spirit is lifted, while they work on their individual art underneath the roof of the little Art House”.
