The TSA is a not for profit community group created in the 1960s for the benefit of artists in the Tauranga region. It continues today as a friendly place to get involved with an art community in a relaxed, fun way. We provide opportunities to work in groups with other artists following similar pursuits. Also providing opportunities to attend workshops, exhibit work, and participate in competitions. A place to learn from each other and grow together in our ideas and our practice.
