Erupt Events are gearing up to host the 2nd annual Big Day Art event in Taupō this March. Proudly sponsored by Quality Print, Big Day Art will showcase the depth and scale of local Taupō talent across a variety of artistic genres.The Quality Print Big Day Art will showcase an incredible mix of different groups and individuals who will be sharing their skills, talent and enthusiasm with the Taupō community for free.The Quality Print Big Day Art maximises the different spaces available at the Great Lake Centre with a variety of performances and events scheduled throughout the day.In the Theatre from 12noon to around 2pm, audiences will be entertained by live music and dance presented by some of Taupō’s many and varied performance artists.The Main Hall will be transformed into a Creative Expo, with over 30 different exhibitors including fine art, photography, music groups, woodworkers, weavers and paper artists. The Expo is a great chance to check out the many different groups offering fellowship, classes and workshops and is a wonderful way to explore your creative side and maybe pick up a new hobby or join a new group.As well as the Expo, Big Day Art will also provide some hands-on opportunities to participate, including workshops and talks - including hip-hop dance classes, drawing workshops and a talk on how to make art a business.A new addition to the programme for 2013 is the creation of a gala evening performance, called 'Big Starry Night'.The full programme (including session times for performances and workshops) will be printed in Taupō Times on Friday 8 March, or can be viewed as a PDF here.
