Art Workshops


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.

"Emma planned a most beautiful and gratifying time for the staff at The Treehouse Private Kindergarten. It was a day of expressing creativity with integrity, and encompassed our philosophy of a nurtured aesthetic environment for learning. The teachers are still inspired and talking about their day. Thank you Emma"
