Event Details

Come along to celebrate Auckland Artweek at Highwic, where you can sit down and sketch the still life tableau that we will create to motivate you. Alternatively, take a look around the house, or beautiful gardens for a subject to inspire you. Drawing materials will be provided.

The Bucklands were an artistic family, with many of the grandchildren creating botanical sketches or portraits of their pets. Their artist instincts may have been encouraged by the greatest artist in the family, Colonel Arthur Morrow, the husband of Mariamne Buckland. He spent his leisure time sketching, drawing and painting. He was a skilled draughtsman and many examples of his work can be seen on the walls at Highwic.

Drop-in session. No need to book.


Adults: $10.

Accompanied children under 18: FREE.
