Latest News from WSA

From April 28th the office staff will be working from home and the WSA, getting ready to hopefully re-open on May 11th and start some of our Term 2 art classes from May 18th. The class numbers will be lower due to keeping our 2m distancing. Please keep an eye on our Art School page for class updates and spare spaces available for term 2, in the classes that will be running. This will be a shortened term of 6 weeks.

We look forward to seeing you all back when the time is right and we can all be safe with our social distancing, proper hygiene measures and contact tracing. Stay safe in your bubbles!

After serious consideration, the 2020 New Zealand Painting and Printmaking Award has been postponed. New dates are available from the NZPPA page.

Please keep checking our website and Facebook/Instagram for further information as we can provide it.
