How does the AHE Art Exhibition work?

The AHE Art Exhibition is a chance to enjoy each other’s artistic creations and be inspired. Each year we have a theme (e.g. New Zealand Nature; Myths, Legends and Fairy Tales; Cultures of the World…). Children of any age may enter. Each child will receive a participation certificate.

What kind of art work is allowed?

Pretty much anything, we think!  Drawings, painting, collage, sculpture, photography, craft….


Each participant may enter up to a maximum of TWO categories.

2D – anything that can be displayed on a flat surface, such as card or canvas. For example: painting, sketching, etching, crayon and dye, collage, cartoon, pastels, printmaking etc or a mix.

3D and Craft – any artwork that is three dimensional. For example: clay sculpture, papier-mâché, painted rocks, wire sculpture, masks, models, carving, dolls, jewellery.

Photography – Display a single photo or a collection on a poster or free standing board.

Wearable Art – Art you can wear.

Story Illustration – create a story or comic that you illustrate or illustrate someone else’s story.


You may enter one art work OR you may enter multiple, up to the size of a display board (such as used for a Science Fair – able to be purchased at stationery shops).
If you enter 3D or Craft you may use up to half a trestle table (approx 1 m).


The cost is $7 per entry for AHE members ($15 non-members) – two entries maximum per person
Maximum cost per family is $21 (AHE members only).


  • Art work that is submitted was made this calendar year.
  • Any assistance that the child has received with their art work must be acknowledged. Generally, tracing and copying is not acceptable. If this is done, it must be acknowledged.

Please note, as with all AHE events, parents are responsible for the care of their children.
