A wide range of sessions in various media are offered such as pastels, Chinese brush painting, drawing, outdoor painting, portraiture, pen and wash, oil painting, acrylics and life drawing.  At present there is one evening session but others will be arranged if numbers warrant. You can view our programme on our Programme page.

Monthly Newsletter

A monthly newsletter is sent out by e-mail and printed copies are posted to those without email who are life members or have paid $10 postage for the year.   Also the newsletter outlines the programme and gives information about workshops and activities the Society will be running.


The Society is running a Facebook page. It contains all manner of interesting posts relating to art topics as well as photos and mention of our various activities. It is updated several times a week with new posts. This is a public page, you do not have to join Facebook to view the Tauranga Society of Artists page.


There is an opportunity for members to sell their art at Art in the Park which is held on Saturdays once a month over winter and twice a month over summer, at Coronation Park, Mount Maunganui.   Dates are advertised in the Newsletters. Also may sell art on the Strand, second and fourth Sunday of each month.
