ARTWORK CARDS (article first published : 2001-12-17)

Help give disadvantaged children a chance to do art by buying Christmas cards from Art Works Trust. These feature artwork by physically challenged children from Thuthukani Art Group in Umlazi.

The colourful drawings on the cards – candles, birds, flowers and starts, were done by Gugu Lukhosi, Pretty Maphumulo and Ntombifuthi Hlope at workshops held at Mason Lincoln Special School in Umlazi. Sales of cards will help to keep alive next year these workshops which are run by Art Works Trust, a non-profit organisation working creatively to overcome disadvantage. Sales also support Children’s Rights Centre and Children First, two other non-profit organisations that do invaluable advocacy work on behalf of children in KZN.

Available either blank or with the words Peace, Khotso, Vrede, Ukuthula, Shanti, Shalom, Salaam in a simple circle inside, they cost R6.50 for a pack of five. This, plus the fact that drawings are suitable for – but not tied to – Christmas means they can also be used for New Year, Diwali, and other occasions or simply for notes throughout the year.

The cards are on sale at the Charity kiosks in Musgrave Centre, Knowles Centre in Pinetown as well as from Art Works Trust, Room 10 Greyville School, Kolling Street. P{hone 031 309-8538.
