“This art class has given me a new lease on life. Angela is an inspirational tutor! This opportunity to do something completely out of my square has been fantastic'
        - a student about tutor Angela Murray

“As a parents of a little art lover, I love that my daughter can be part of creative community of same aged kids. She looks forward to her classes every week. Her imagination has increased a lot since joining MAC. I also appreciate that MAC involves kids in the Auckland wide competitions like the Photo competition last year. This increases kid's perception to arts which I give MAC full credit for!”
