Cherry Blossom Painting Workshop in Auckland - Sunday 19th February 2023


Cherry Blossom Painting with Artist Ema Frost (All Levels)

Sunday 19th February - 10:30am - 12:30pm or 2:00 - 4:00pm (choose which time from the drop down menu)

Ema Frost is a very clever Kiwi Artist, whose illustrations and ceramic works sit in many of our countries best galleries, and whose products and merchandise sell in the most stylish design stores and gallery shops. Her style is enchanting - quirky, feminine and colourful, and clearly influenced by her travels throughout the world, usually off the beaten track. Ema is inspired by the mystery and magic found in Japanese and Maori Folklore, and this influence can be seen throughout her captivating and detailed images.

Ema, who has travelled extensively throughout Japan training in art techniques across a variety of mediums, guests will learn to work with gouache (an opaque watercolour) to produce their own original painting to take home. Ema will show you how to work from a basic concept design, and using shapes and shadows, you will work your way to the finished product. Ema will guide you through the techniques and materials she uses in doing her own illustration and painting work.

We will be using gouache which is an opaque water colour which I love to use - it gives you a milky matte finish so it does behave differently to the traditional water colour paints that you may have used prior. You will take away your wonderful finished work, plus your knew skills which will enable you to further your own painting/sketch in your own time.

This class is not just for budding or accomplished artists. It is for everyone to enjoy a relaxing day of art and design with Ema. (All Levels)

A finished artwork piece
A understanding of painting with gouache (opaque water colour)
Knowledge of sketching
