Welcome to Māpura

Māpura Studios is a creative space and art therapy centre located in central Auckland with satellite groups in other areas.

We offer art classes and art therapy programmes for people of all ages living with disability and diversity, as well as the wider community.

We provide a professional service in person-centred visual arts learning, creative therapies, and arts practice – and maintain an extensive exhibition calendar for our artists.

Our studio is located in a pleasant, airy setting at Rocky Nook Bowls in Fowlds Park, St Lukes. There is easy and ample access for people in wheelchairs, as well as a carpark.

Māpura Studios is an independent organisation, administered by Panacea Arts Charitable Trust and funded by grants and programme fees.

It makes me feel better - getting away from hospital,
being with others and painting
