Community Art Education

Mairangi Arts Centre is the one of the largest centres in New Zealand

Mairangi Arts Centre is the one of the largest centres for community art education in New Zealand. We have an exciting and diverse range of classes for adults, teenagers and children.

For adults, classes are available in painting (acrylics, watercolours and oils) life drawing and drawing skills, pastels, printmaking, clay and glass casting. Adult’s classes and workshops are available during the day, in the evening and weekends.
After school, on Saturday mornings and during the school holidays we have classes available in painting, drawing, printing, mixed media, sculpture, clay and movie making for children and teenagers.
Our tutors are a skilled group of creative people who are not only practising artists but excellent teachers. Whether you are a complete beginner or wanting to take your practice a little further you will find just the right class in our education programme.

Gallery Exhibitions
We have one of the largest gallery spaces in Auckland and offer a programme of exhibitions changing approximately every 3 weeks.
This month Drawn is showing from August 8th – 25th. This exhibition features original handmade drawings from a variety of artists living locally and throughout NZ.
Artspaces 2 runs from 29th August – 19th September. Artspaces is a great opportunity for artists to show a small body of work in a space of their own with the support of other like minded artists.

Children’s Birthday Parties

For a memorable and fun party with a difference why not book a children’s birthday party with us. The children spend 90 minutes with one of our tutors creating a work of art with their friends.  You can always find a perfect gift in our retail store which stocks beautiful unique affordable items from local artists.
