Support the creative journey of our tamariki that will last a lifetime.

Help us deliver creative learning opportunities for our tamariki (children), rangatahi (youth) and kaiako (teachers). With your support, our education and whānau programmes help the next generation build an enriching connection with art that will last a lifetime.


Our team of professional art teachers create and deliver bespoke learning programmes that give youngsters, aged two to 20, the opportunity to learn about art and history while embarking on their own creative journey. We aim to offer the same for families visiting the Gallery through our intergenerational whānau drop-in art-making activities, interactive Creative Learning Centre and fun family activities that keep kids engaged while exploring our galleries.

Most of these programmes and resources are offered for free, but they come at a cost for the Gallery. Donate today so we can connect more youngsters with art and foster their creative journey.

Donation impact

Every donation helps the Gallery create meaningful art experiences for tamariki, rangatahi and whānau.

Contributions of all sizes play a vital role in our development, and donations of $5 and over are tax-deductible.

Programme feedback

Our education and engagement programmes make a lasting impact on the next generation. Below is some lovely feedback we received from tamariki, kaiako and parents last year:

‘The students had a great time on what was for many their first visit to the art gallery. They really enjoyed their studio time and the activities that encouraged them to look more closely at the artworks. I know lots are keen to return with their whānau.’ – Teacher, Papatoetoe North School

 ‘I love coming here whenever I can because it’s exciting to see new activities and I meet new friends!’ – Boy, aged 7, after participating in a whānau drop-in

‘This is our first time [at the Gallery] and everyone has been absolutely amazing, especially with the kids.’ – Father of two young boys
