About us

The home of the two day Art Break's is a Contemporary well appointed New Zealand bach with a kiwi retro feel (furnishings reminiscent of the 50s and 60s). There is the choice of single or double beds, a fireplace, both an outdoor and indoor hot and cold shower and two toilets. The bach is within a 2 minute walk to Waihi's white sand surf beach and within walking distance to the local village with its interesting shops and cafes. Art breaks are over two nights from afternoon tea time on the Wednesday or Friday til after lunch on the Friday (for mid week breaks) or Sunday. Prices include accommodation, meals (except for one night out), art supplies and any art guidance or tuition.

Creativity, Inspiration, and laughter!

My Art break weekend was inspirational and fun . Despite feeling very challenged about my ability to produce art, Naomi and Pippa's support and encouragement meant I did it! - and in such a variety of media. I learnt so much about art techniques, materials and feel I can go on at home and give my own art a go. I can't believe you fitted so much into the two days. All this, PLUS your amazing hospitality, made me feel so at home and comfortable with a cosy bed and delicious food. The setting of the bach is delightful- pohutukawa trees as painting inspiration and that stunning outdoor shower were highlights. Thank you both so much. I loved meeting and learning alongside the new friends I made over the weekend too. I'll be back for Art Break 2!

Art Break 2

What a great weekend in a fabulous location with tutors who provided not only the opportunity to follow up on what we had learnt at Art Break 1 but also to use the media of our preference. Time for experimentation was important to me ,as it'd been a while since I'd picked up a paintbrush. I therefore valued and enjoyed some 'playing' time to help loosen up . Both Heather and Naomi were encouraging and helpful teaching new techniques and providing a great range of resources and materials. Once again we were spoilt with delicious meals and snacks. Thank you Heather and Naomi for making this weekend a special experience in every way!

Second time around at Simpson's Beach, Artbreak #2 has rekindled the spark ignited in Artbreak #1. Just what I needed to boost the morale in the friendly, encouraging environment provided by Naomi & Heather. Had a lot of fun using a different medium guided by their excellent tips and demonstrations. With all the materials and equipment provided we had the opportunity to explore and play as we wanted, with no pressure to produce a Van Gogh or Matisse! Superb location with excellent accommodation, and don't get me started on the food and the morning cuppa in bed! Such a relaxing, yet uplifting weekend! Roll on Artbreak #3!

2nd Artbreak weekend even better!

Thanks Naomi & Heather. Our second Artbreak delivered everything I expected and more. It rekindled the spark for painting that you first ignited in Artbreak #1 with your enthusiasm, insightful lessons and relaxed atmosphere. Not to mention the delicious food, beautiful accommodation (thanks Graham & Heather) and the lovely hot cuppa in bed to start the days! Will be signing up for #3 whenever you're ready!

Excellent introduction to painting

This was a great introduction to the art of painting, but it is so much more than this. Talented and engaging tutors who are also the cooks/ hosts/ providers of entertainment. The day starts with a cup of tea in bed/ facilities are fine (including the painted bathroom which provides an illusion of already being at the beach), and painting is not the only focus. There is ample time for eating/ resting/ walking/ shopping and dancing in the evening at the Waihi Beach hotel. Overall an excellent weekend and very inspirational Thanks Heather and Naomi.
