City Gallery Wellington
This is always a hugely popular event, so bring along your kids, your niece and nephews, your grandchildren… (Muka prints are great Christmas gifts!).
Exclusively for 5 to 18 year olds, original lithographs by 20 prominent artists from New Zealand, Australia, Europe and Korea are available for sale at $55 (unframed). Artists’ names and signatures are covered during the show, so kids choose the works that appeal to them – no adults allowed!

Badge making – make cool badges that you draw yourself!
