The 30th Wanaka Autumn Art School
Thirty years on, the Wanaka Autumn Art School is still going strong. Set up in 1990 by the Upper Clutha
Community Arts Council, the school was established to offer courses with a wide range of exceptional tutors
from throughout the country and further afield. This practice still applies and the school attracts more than
200 students each year also from throughout New Zealand.
The 30th annual school will be held on April 23 - 27 2019 at Mt Aspiring College. We’re delighted to offer a
selection of courses, some new, some repeat, including writing (Fiona Kidman), painting & drawing (Noreen
Melvin), water colour (Jacky Pearson), the process of painting (David Ryan), history as a painter’s toolbox
(Jenna Packer), stencilling (Flox), nature journaling (Jo Ogier), travel photography (Dave Wethey), landscape & portrait photography David Oliver), mixed media (Lynn Taylor), book arts (Phil Ridgway), jewellery (Vaune Mason), textiles (Susan Mathews), glass mosaics (Jasmine Keir), screen writing (Steve Barr), singing (Julian Raphael) and fly fishing (Mike Weddell).
Brochures will be mailed out in early January and the full programme with registration details will be posted
on the website – www.autumnartschool.net.nz in the second week of January. Booking quickly is advisable as many of the classes fill within a few days.
