A not-for-profit organisation, it was formed in 1967 to support teachers of china painting in Western Australia. Its mission is to foster closer relationships between teachers and to hold working exhibitions aimed at producing higher standards, the adoption of new products and techniques and to generally improve the art of porcelain painting.


Having an active committee, APAT WA holds regular meetings, publishes six newsletters per year, organises porcelain painting workshops and holds exhibitions and sales of work including their bi-annual regional exhibition.
