Children's activity seeks parental commitment

Art in the Arvo, a community based arts and performance program for
Waitati children is in desperate need for parental support.

Sophia Leon de la Barra and Miguel Molina offer kids' activities such
as music, drawing, puppet making, treasure hunting and movie making.

"We really need to have parents and kids commit to it as we are
arranging for people to take time out of their day to come and do
something for the kids," Sophia told 'Blueskin News'.

Sophia and Miguel offer kids a chance to say what they want to do and
they are in the process of getting equipment such as music
instruments.

"If kids want to learn an instrument they need to be here every week,"
Sophia says.

A meeting was organised for 20 January to encourage support for the project.
