Welcome to Inverlochy Art School

Inverlochy Art School offers you a fabulous range of highest quality part time art classes taught by carefully selected practicing artists and artisans. 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.
