Social Art Group

Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday 9:30am-2:30pm

Get your hands dirty, try new things and meet new people in our open art studio.  Arts for Health is open all year, with a short break for Christmas. Our social art groups are open to all people of all abilities, 15 years old and up. If you are worried about not knowing what to do, our art tutors can offer suggestions to get you going or help you if you are feeling stuck. Whether you want to try  painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture and printmaking, or any other medium that takes your fancy, we are here to help you make that happen. We stock basic art materials but feel free to bring along your own materials if you are working on something special.

$5 per session come for an hour or a whole day, your choice.

Thank you to The Braemar Charitable Trust for their support of our premier studio space.

This service is available throughout the wider Waikato District dependent on funding.
