The Mairangi Arts Centre is proud to announce our 'Meet the Tutors' day on Saturday, 21 June from 10am-3pm. Free entry.

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.


Suddenly Last Century - a talk with TJ McNamara at 12pm
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.

This day coincides with our 'Tutors Showcase' so you will also be able to view examples of our tutors’ artwork.

Pencil this date in your diary and come along to see us, this promises to be a great day!

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
