We are an incorporated society and Registered Charity (Registered under the Charities Act 2005 - Number CC54321). We are based in the beautiful, grade 2 listed, historic Inverlochy House in central Wellington. The schools emphasis is on learning technique and mastering skills in each medium; very hands-on and experiential. Our courses are designed for all levels of ability and are taught in a friendly and informal environment. We have a maximum student limit for each course, giving you the best tutor/student ratio possible.

Upcoming Courses

Our day and evening courses are 8 weeks long, when there is a public holiday we usually make up the lost day at the end of the term meaning that there will be 8 classes over 9 weeks.

View our exciting range of adult and children art courses in Term Three 2017. There are also weekend workshops. Take note of those you would like to attend and book on the Enrolments page. There is also spaces in our Children's After School Programmes and School Holiday Programmes for children aged 6 and up.

School Holiday Art Programme: Week 1

Tutor: Rowena Fry

This summer holiday programme has been designed to challenge and encourage children from 6 to 12 years old who love art and design. The programme is a mixed media experience where we will be celebrating colour and media - learning colour theory, texture and layering in order to create materials for further projects. Keen, young minds and hands will be occupied within drawing, painting and sculpture.  Students will have made a variety of art objects by the end of the course to take home.

Please bring a large box on the last day! All materials are supplied including smocks to help keep children clean.

Each holiday the programme changes to add variety for the many returning students.

The classes are very popular so please book early to avoid disappointment.
