Volunteer needed for Learning Team 

The Learning Programmes Team at Tauranga Art Gallery provides exciting art classes for over 9000 school children per year, as well as holiday programmes, weekend workshops and Family Fun Days.  
We are FLAT OUT (in a good way) and in need of a volunteer to support our friendly, creative team with the preparation of art materials and to generally help out.

Ideally, it would be someone who can assist us for 2 – 4 hours per week.

The hours of work would generally be 2.30 –4.30pm (after classes have finished) on weekdays, but we can negotiate to make it suits you and the team.

The person we are looking for will be very organised, and have good attention to detail.


They will be dexterous with their hands, able to work quickly and precisely, and be a good communicator and a positive team player. Activities may include but are not limited to:

Cutting of stencils, paper, fabric and other materials into specified shapes; sorting materials into bundles or containers; priming artwork surfaces and mixing paint colours; sharpening pencils; prepping clay; sewing; assisting with cleanup after the last class; cleaning containers, brushes, tables and chairs.

This volunteer position would be best suited to someone who wanted to make a meaningful contribution to support of the Gallery’s charitable endeavours with schools in the area. They will enjoy being part of the Art Gallery Team, and gaining an insight into the internal workings of the Art Gallery.

If this sounds like something you would like to do, please email Hannah Wilson or call her on 07 579 0627 to arrange a time to chat about the role and the possibility of you joining us.
