This July School holidays, immerse yourself in the enchanting world of art and nature as we invite you to join our incredible event.

Calling all art enthusiasts, nature lovers, and creative minds of all ages! Step into the Mahurangi Community Centre in Snells Beach from the 3rd to the 5th of July, between 10 am and 4 pm, for an unforgettable experience. This free event, spanning three days, is the perfect way to kick off the School holidays.

Witness the transformation of six massive panels into a stunning New Zealand forest mural. But we need your help to complete this majestic masterpiece! Choose a Native Bird cutout to paint, and together, let’s bring our forest to life.
