Penelope the perky Pukeko: With their long gangly legs and curious strut, you can't help but smile when you see these cool birds. Living pretty much all over New Zealand, they're the highlight of many a road trip. They're a fabulous, much loved feature in our landscape. Come paint happy Penelope with us.
Wellington by Night: A city of culture, colour and creativity. We love the night vibes Wellington shares with us and the awesome sunsets too. We've captured some of that in this colourful night scene of our Capital City. Who doesn't love a night on the town! Come paint one with us!
Kiwi Summer: We all love a kiwi summer. It's almost a right of passage for any kiwi to spend summer at the beach. Swimming, laughing with your family and friends, getting sand in places it should never be, and enjoying our beautiful coast. Come paint Kiwi Summer with us to relive all your fab summer memories.
Whale Tale: Once upon a time a whale came to Wellington and all the local people fell in love with him. They named him Matariki because he came during Māori New Year. He danced around the harbour and brought smiles to all who saw him. He stayed a while and made everyone so happy. Come paint our happy whale with us.
Koru Companions. In Māori art the Koru symbolises growth, strength, new life and peace. We created this painting to represent how thankful we are for the blessings and comfort we receive from those around us, especially when life gets a bit chaotic.
It sums up how harmonious life can be when we all support each other. Come paint Koru with us.
