Acrylic, Oils, Watercolour, Pastel, Drawing, Etching, Glass Casting, Printmaking, Pottery, Mixed Media... there’s hardly anything we don’t offer here at the Mairangi Arts Centre. Plus we have classes for all ages and abilities – so making art becomes a fun and entertaining activity for you amongst other likeminded students.


The office will be open so you can choose your ideal class for Term 3 (starts 21 July) and make a booking at the same time.

This lecture will be about the progress of art in New Zealand in the 20th Century with emphasis on the growth in confidence and variety of style in the second half of the century. Bookings essential – phone 09 478 2237.

Enjoy lovely tunes from Gypsy Jazz band VoxNova throughout the day.
