Our instructors:
Emma Theyers:
Emma Theyers is a New Zealand-born artist, currently based in Glenorchy. Since completing her Bachelor's degree at the Queensland College of Art in Australia, Emma has exhibited throughout Australia and more recently New Zealand. Her works have been shortlisted in prestigious art awards, including the JADA Drawing Prize (AU), Hadley’s Landscape Art Prize (AU), Dobell Drawing Prize (AU) and the Parkin Prize (NZ).

Emma Peers:
A Scottish-born artist, Emma emigrated to New Zealand in 2006 after studying at the Glasgow School of Art. Her art is largely focused on portraiture and figurative painting, but also draws inspiration from the landscapes of Central Otago, incorporating their textures and colours into her work. Emma's paintings explore emotion, with recent works focusing on mark making and the manipulation of form to evoke a strong sense of feminine expression.

These workshops target a range of learning abilities.

No art experience is required.
All ages are welcome; only those above 18 YO will be served wine.

Every session includes:
- A glass of Nockie’s Palette wine (or a non-alcohol drink)
