Give your young visual creatives a leg up. With Click Happy they get to learn how to use their art to make the world a better place this school holiday. While they learn skills to develop creative resilience and self-compassion.
Who is it ideal for?
- Years 7-11 who are interested in the visual arts or photography
- Young activists ( we use photography to teach peaceful creative activism)
- Exceptional Year 12-13 visual artists who can handle and would thrive with extension and professional mentorship by a multi-award-winning career artist.
What is it?
A free photography course taught online during the school holidays that is wrapped over the top of an award-winning wellness program for youth aged 10-24.
- taught by a past winner of New Zealand's Creative Photographer of the Year
- Winner of the Wellington Health and Wellbeing Award for Community Organizations.
- 5 photography challenges
- teaches manual settings on a DSLR or advanced settings on a device's camera.
- they create a photographic portfolio by the end of it.
- their images may be selected for an end of year exhibition - curated by youth and then by a team of world-class photographers.
- This is the first step in qualifying for Click Happy Plus which is a 10 week deep dive masterclass into photography and wellness. (scholarships are available and will be distributed based on performance in Click Happy).
Wellness Outcomes (we like to think this is the green smoothie goodness that is hidden in the ice cream tastiness of the photography challenges)

- Exposed to techniques that help to turn down the volume of the inner critic and turn up the volume of the muse.
