We're keeping the studio closed a little longer but you can still learn to paint with us online.

Silke from Heart for Art

Hi everyone and a big woohoo for getting us to lockdown level 2. 👍We're hoping you'll all be so busy enjoying all your favourite shops, cafes, eateries and fave spots again, that you wont mind that we've decided to stay closed a little longer. ☕️🍰🍟🍔🏖

Hi everyone and a big woohoo for getting us to lockdown level 2. 👍We're hoping you'll all be so busy enjoying all your favourite shops, cafes, eateries and fave spots again, that you wont mind that we've decided to stay closed a little longer. ☕️🍰🍟🍔🏖

We don't believe we can offer you a quality painting experience and a 100% covid safe environment, so we'd rather wait till we can be absolutely sure we can deliver to our previous awesome Paint Party standard again before we reopen the studio for in person painting classes.

Our goal has always been to share the joy and healing of art with you, and we cant wait to get back to teaching you face to face as soon as we feel we can safely do so. We'll reassess as we get closer to Level 1.

Thanks so much for all the love, messages and ongoing support over the last couple of months. We're having a blast with virtual paint parties, but we really miss having you in the studio and can't wait to serve you in person again soon.
Till then, stay safe, stay healthy, stay happy
Aroha nui 😍

PS If you'd like to learn to paint with us online, join our virtual paint parties. More info here heartforart.co.nz...

Releasing water

The Team from Wellington Water

This may look like a waste of water, but it’s sometimes better to release a little bit out rather than turn off water to the whole street.

Here we have Water Serviceperson Rapata replacing a broken toby. Rather than turning off the water, he diverted the flow away from the affected house for a … View more

Our impending move to Alert Level 2 provided some "food for speech" at last night's club meeting, as did words of compassion from our Prime Minister, and communication styles in challenging medical environments.

We changed the tune mid-meeting with our Annual Business Meeting - congratulations to Lisa, our President Elect, and our new committee. We know the club will be good hands over the year to come!
