Create your own party and host a unique celebration at Maitland Regional Art Gallery.
Children just love MRAG for its quirky, vibrant and regularly changing exhibitions and programs. The Gallery garden has 2 picnic tables available for Art Party reservations, seating up to 16 (more if you bring a picnic rug!). As the tables are outside it is suggested that you have a wet weather plan in place. Party guests are encouraged to explore the Gallery under adult supervision, with clip boards and fun activity sheets available on request (best suited to ages 8+), with catering and games permissible outside in the Gallery gardens. Please note due to fragile artwork and other scheduled events, food/drink and decorations are not able to be accommodated inside. Picnic tables and chairs may be moved, but please return them to where you found them, noting any damage to persons or property in moving furniture is at your own risk.
Picnic tables are available during Gallery open hours; 10.00am – 5:00pm, Tuesday to Sunday (subject to availability, some exceptions due to public holidays and special events). Please give us a call at least 24 hours in advance to reserve the picnic tables.
This all depends on you, stay for a couple of hours or all day if you like, there is plenty to see-make-do!
MRAG is not responsible for any aspect of catering services and catering for the event must be provided by the party host. Please note there are no public kitchen facilities on site.
FREE! The beauty of utilising the picnic tables is that there is no hire fee. Entry to the Gallery is free and activity sheets are provided at no cost, though your donation is greatly appreciated.
If you would like to engage an art tutor for the event, this can be arranged for a fee of $200.00 for 2 hours (includes 2 art activities and materials). A minimum of two weeks’ notice is requested. Maximum of 15 participants / tutor. Please get in touch to discuss dates and numbers 4934 9859.
