Outdoor Painting Groups

Come out on a Sunday in each month and enjoy outdoor painting in the good company of our members. We have two groups – Wellington and Kapiti – and you can paint with either or both.

Each group meets on Sunday morning, then has lunch together, either at a nearby café or picnic at the painting location.

The outdoor painting sessions have a co-ordinator for each group - Wellington and Kapiti.

To be on the list to receive email confirmation a few days prior to each session, please give your email address to the co-ordinator who will be the ‘go-to’ person in case of doubtful weather

Wellington sessions are organised and tutored by selected experienced artists on a voluntary basis.

Kapiti sessions are co-ordinated by Audrey Moore and will have a volunteer ‘meeter & greeter’ for each session. Phone Audrey Moore on (04) 9046382.

Monthly Painting Groups are FREE. If you are not a member, come along and try us out. No obligation, join up there and then if you wish to continue. We paint all year round - only serious rain puts us off!

The committee values the work of the regional coordinators. If you live in another region of New Zealand and wish to become a coordinator for MPG outings in your region, please contact us).
