Mairangi Arts Centre In Full Swing

Art classes for all age groups including adults, teens and children

Mairangi Arts Centre is already in full swing for the year with our term one art classes due to start in February. It is not a problem to join a class a couple of weeks into the term so now is an ideal time to take the plunge and fulfil that New Year’s Resolution to try out an art class.

We have a wide range of classes for all age groups including adults, teens and children as well as a brand new class for parents to come along to create some art with their preschoolers. Our programme includes oil, watercolour, acrylic painting, basic and advanced drawing skills, clay and cast glass. We also have some brand new classes for you to learn how to crochet, weave flax or make a paper mache bowl.
Teenagers can learn drawing and painting techniques, pick up some crochet skills or create a garment from recycled materials to enter in the Trash to Fashion Awards.
Children enjoy a range of classes including painting/drawing, clay and movie making. Our brand new clay class gives young people aged 5-12 years the opportunity to make sculptures such as lighthouses, miniature furniture or kiwiana. In our ‘Fish, Birds & All Kinds of Creepy Crawlies’ class children will make fantastic pictures of NZ birds, insects, fish and reptiles using a wide variety of drawing/painting materials. Most children’s classes take place after school but in response to high demand for our Saturday morning art class we now have a class available on Saturday afternoons as well. You can come & see us in person, phone us or use the online booking system on our website.

Mairangi Arts Centre, 20 Hastings Road, Mairangi Bay., email: Telephone 478-2237. Office/gallery open: 9.30am-4pm Monday to Friday or 10am-2pm Saturday.
