Byron Bay Contemporary Artspace seamlessly combines an art gallery with an independent art school in the heart of Byron Bay.  

Explore our range of engaging, holistic art classes designed for Kids, Teens and Adults. 

Our tailored art classes for Kids, Teens, and Adults ensure individualized attention, thanks to their small size, fostering a flexible and supportive learning environment.


Our commitment lies in cultivating an inclusive learning atmosphere. Here, individuals of all ages—Kids, Teens, and Adults—are not just taught; they are encouraged, empowered with confidence, and equipped with the technical know-how to unleash their creative potential.

MZ Gallery features works from established and emerging artists and is available for exhibition hire. We actively promote local artists and engage with the wider art community.

We also host events such as kids and adults Art Parties, Lifedrawing & Wine Evenings as well as Corporate Team Building Art Events. 

Dr. Michele Zarro, the owner, is a passionate visual artist with over 20 years of experience. She is a registered Visual Arts teacher in NSW and holds a current NSW Working With Children Check.

Michele has extensive knowledge of visual arts, holding a PhD, MVA, and BVA (Hons. Class1) from the University of Sydney. She also studied at École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and serves as an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme examiner.  

I believe the enduring relationship between the Arts, Education, Society and Culture is important and this ideology underpins my vision for

Byron Bay Contemporary Artspace.
