5 day workshop based aroind the high country Jindabyne lake.
We will visit the high country gallery of Alan Grosvenor (1925-2012) for inspiration and now we have the opportunity to work in this artist's realm.
The workshop will 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.
Participants to this workshop are free to choose their own accommodation in Jindabyne.
There are many choices available and we recommend that you check them out on line.
We will share that several have booked at the Jindy Inn. Phone Janine on 02 6456 1957. The Rydges resort is across the road and others have chosen the NRMA caravan park. All are very close to each other and within easy distance to the restaurants and shops.
