Coromandel Art Group

Coromandel Town

Coromandel Art Group is based in Coromandel town, with members from all over the northern peninsula.


We have been going for some 15 years, and are the longest established local art group.


Our numbers are limited to 20 members, due to the constraints of our venue, which is St Andrews Hall in Coromandel town.


We meet there weekly on a Thursday from 9am to 12md. In summer, we go further afield to sketch and paint some of our beautiful scenery.


We are led by Val Gray, our own in-house tutor known for her beautiful silk paintings and watercolours, as well as her oils and acrylics.


About 3 times a year we bring in outside tutors to run full day workshops, to inspire us and teach new techniques.


Each year we hold an annual exhibition in summer, at the Hauraki House Gallery. As well as submitting our individual paintings, we have a tradition of doing a joint painting for sale, which is a lot of fun.


New members are always welcome if we have the space.
