The Texan Art School was founded more than 15 years ago as a place for Tech and Design students to showcase and sell their works. We visited the Texan Art Schools outlet in Ponsonby - the TAS represents hundreds of young and recent New Zealand artists. The store is overflowing with art pieces and items for sale that are out of the ordinary. The ceramics and print works were innovative and beautifully crafted. The re-interpretation of traditional art styles was fascinating. Priced to come home in a suitcase and well worth the visit.
