NBS Helps The Suter Make Art Matter for Students

Posted on 15 February 2023

The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū is thrilled to announce NBS as a key sponsor of their art education programmes, helping them bridge a funding gap and allowing them to continue making art matter for youngsters in the Nelson-Tasman region.

For over two decades, The Suter Art Gallery has been offering art education to thousands of students annually through its well-established and comprehensive educational programme that enhances curriculum-based learning and fosters creativity in children.

As a non-profit organisation, finding funds to continue this work is vital.

Ruth Roebuck, Manager of Commerce & Enterprise at The Suter is delighted to have NBS join the gallery as a sponsor.

“Art encourages youngsters to think, feel, and express themselves creatively,” she says. “Thanks to support from community-minded businesses such as NBS, we can continue to educate and inspire local students of all ages and backgrounds.”

NBS is well-known for work in the local community and for their support of non-profit organisations like The Suter.

Nic Foster, NBS Community Engagement Manager recently visited the gallery and saw a class in progress.

NBS are very pleased that our funding is being used to remove barriers for our tamariki in the arts education space. It’s exciting to see The Suter running interesting and high-quality programmes for students from across the region. When I attended a class, the students all showed artistic promise and their artworks were visibly enhanced after just a few weeks with The Suter programme.”

In addition to its curriculum-based learning programmes, The Suter Art Gallery also offers a diverse range of after-school and adult art classes catering to students and adults of all ages and skill levels.
