We would like to invite you in to the Gallery to attend Saturday Sittings, our monthly free portraiture drawing session.

We will include a mix of timed short and long poses for you to draw. All you need is paper and drawing materials - the Gallery also provides some basic materials that you are welcome to use.

For those attending the Saturday Sitting please arrive early to set yourself up, as the session will begin bang on 2pm and finish at 4pm. Usually we provide a cuppa and a snack, this time unfortunately we cannot have kai in the Gallery while the Kiingi Tuheitia Portraiture Award exhibition is on. Therefore the session may finish a bit earlier.

This is a free event. Feel free to invite and bring along your friends and whānau; and we hope to see you all there!

If you are interested in sitting (being the model) for the Saturday Sittings, please contact the gallery. We are always on the lookout for future models. Anybody and everybody is welcome to be a sitter!
