Designed for art lovers, this 4-day art adventure to Taranaki is not to be missed!
Starting in Auckland City, we’ll hit the road with a small-group of like-minded people (8 people) and experience one of the most scenic road-trips in New Zealand – from the lush rolling pasturelands of the Waikato through to Taranaki’s wild west coast landscapes.
The next two days will be filled with studio visits, art demonstrations and behind the scenes visits to some of the regions best creative practitioners and venues.
Of course, no trip to New Plymouth would be complete without a visit to the Govett-Brewster Gallery but we’ll also visit Puke Ariki to view incredible local taonga with a fascinating history.
This will be an inspirational trip and we encourage photographers, artists and writers to bring materials to create your own work during the trip.
