Mapura Studios is a creative space offering innovative art programmes for people of all abilities.
The people who attend sessions at Mapura Studios are a diverse bunch who come from all walks of life but share interest and passion in making art. It’s this passion for visual arts that brings them together. The diversity of people makes Mapura unique.
We currently run 12 classes a week for over 130 students. The classes range from Open Studios to Studio Practice for more established artists, to Art for Life to Leading a Creative Life. We also run art classes for teens and children.
