Colourful collage

Colourful collage workshop with Artist Emma Prill.
Saturday 6th April 10am -3pm
Omokoroa settlers hall

Emma has exhibited both nationally and internationally. Her most exhibition “Colourfield” was an immersive, large scale installation in the Tauranga Art Gallery. Emma teaches various workshops to both adults and children.

Join artist Emma Prill for this popular one day workshop. Explore colour, line, composition, texture and form using vibrant acrylic paints. In this workshop you will be looking at the iconic "vase and flower" subject that has been of inspiration to artists for centuries. Paint your own richly-coloured canvas sheets before cutting them and assembling onto your painted boards to create a stunning contemporary vase-and-flower composition.

Emma will lead you through the processes step by step - guiding and sharing techniques while leaving lots of room for you to bring your own skills and inspiration into your work. Bring a friend? A family member? Or come alone and meet other like minded creatives for a wonderful creative day and take home a beautiful artwork

Exploring Form, Colour and texture.

At the Incubator - Tauranga
9th March  10am - 3pm
All materials included
This is a fun and  experimental workshop where a variety of mediums and processes are taught and explored. 
Emma will talk about aspects of her recent installation Colourfield at the Tauranga Art gallery and integrate some of the methods she worked with the cardboard into this workshop. 
Colour and form are explored using acrylic paints, inks and oil pastel.  Organic shapes are cut from the painted cardboard, echoing the shapes we find in nature such as rock pools, river beds, green spaces. Line, texture, negative and positive space are explored with the way each painted part is then assembled to create a layered relief work of art rich in colour and texture.

Art Workshops


Art Workshop’s. Emma has a warm, nurturing and inspiring approach to her teaching. She encourages each individual to find their own creative voice. Emma is continuously creating new workshops where new materials and processes are demonstrated and variety of materials are explored.

Emma is an organised teacher; her workshops are well prepared and offer clear instructions to the range of processes and techniques she teaches. The workshops offer a relaxed environment where everyone, regardless of previous creative experience, will learn something new. Emma provides quality materials for her workshops.

I recently went on Emma Prill's two day Dynamics of Colour workshop. I was a bit nervous because I thought I might not be good enough but found the whole experience both uplifting and affirming. The whole workshop was supportive, friendly and welcoming.

The motivation was thoughtful and sincere and everyone worked on a number of projects at their own pace with as much or as little input as they wished. Emma was friendly, relaxed, well organised and motivating. I would LOVE to attend another one as I got so much out of it.
