The Heaton Art Extension group have been involved in a street art project run by Scape. This has resulted in a ‘gallery’ of self-portrait stencils, made by children throughout Christchurch, being erected at the terrace in the Re-Start Mall. Last Tuesday they all went along to spray their stencils on the hoarding. Sophie Pascoe was there to spray the stencil she had made. Ellie and Logan, the Kākano Mano art leaders were also able to interview Sophie for the newsletter.
