After 25 years the Wanaka Autumn Art School is still going strong and registrations for 2014 have opened.

This year's courses include writing, painting and drawing, pastels and contemporary art, print making, photography, portraiture, introductory digital, textiles, book arts, cabinet making, upholstery, singing, and fly tying and fishing.

School co-ordinator Robyn van Reenen said the school will run from April 28 to May 2 at the Mt Aspiring College campus and at least 200 people from throughout the country were expected to attend.

Spaces are filling fast and about half of the spots already taken.

Tutors are also from throughout New Zealand as well as Jules and Effin Older, from San Francisco, and Kim Thittichai, from Britain.  

The school was established as a 1990 project and has gone from strength-to-strength ever since.

It was well known for the calibre of the tutors and for being a vibrant and stimulating week.

This year's programme has been released and those wanting to take part are urged to register as soon as possible.
