Today, Post a Note would like to introduce you to Art Metro, a wonderful place for all art enthusiasts and hobbyists!
Connect With Your Inner Artist
Discover the artist in you at Art Metro on Papanui Road. With a welcoming cafe at the front, a gallery of artworks on the walls and a studio space at the back, Art Metro is an art school with a difference.
With students aged 5 to 93, classes are taught in small groups for any level of skill or experience: the only prerequisite for attendance is a desire to be creative! Classes in oils and acrylics, abstract, water colours, and drawing and sketching are taught by tutors who are artists themselves, with national and international experience behind them.
‘One thing I come across regularly is people who would like to give it a go, but feel that somehow they might not be good enough’, says Simon Walmisley, the Principal of the Art Metro. ‘One of the most enjoyable parts of my job here is to seeing their confidence bloom when they have a few sessions with the tutor and realise that they can do it!’
Students come from all over the city for classes that currently operate at Art Metro from Monday to Friday; morning, afternoon and evening.. Whether you want to try a new hobby, recapture past skills or simply enjoy some personal creativity time, your inquiries are welcomed. Phone 354 4438, visit www.artmetro.co.nz, or pop in for a coffee and a chat with Simon. He would love to see you, and see you grow your passion and love of art.
The Post a Note team would like to thank Art Metro for being such a great part of our community.
