Learning Opportunities

Corban Estate Arts Centre is proud to run a range of high-quality learning opportunities through our Public Programme Art Classes, renowned Schools Education Workshops and free DIY Art Adventures series, designed for kids to download and do anywhere, anytime.

We are also home to the Kākano Youth Arts Collective, a visual arts programme established in 2013 that caters to troubled youth facing uncertain futures and dealing with challenges in their lives.

In all respects, we see the arts as a vital component to enriching the lives of our community and are determined advocates for the arts benefiting mental health, wellbeing and connection.
