5 day workshop based at the Kunama Gallery in Jindabyne.
This was the high country gallery of Alan Grosvenor (1925-2012) for many years and now we have the opportunity to work in this artist's realm.
The workshop will start in the gallery and cover the artistic choices we will need and consider as a basis before we tackle the wonderful vistas around around the lake and mountains of Jindabyne. There will be daily demonstrations, days to work with the inspiration that plein air gives to artists and time to assess the results and take our work to the next level.
This trip offers you a brush with the raw grandeur of the Capertee Valley and surroundings. A car is essential as we will travel to paint the rugged and the beautiful. While we recommend that painters stay at the same place it is not essential. Partners are welcome.
7 days guidance with your paintings, three assessmant sessions and daily demonstrations and or tutoring sessions which will show you possibilities or things to consider with your daily artworks. There is one extra free day to relax, explore, golf or finess your paintings.
There are two main accommodation choices
Shared Cottage (3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms full kitchen)
Fairways Serviced motel with free Continental breakfast. (more information on request)
