3DAY/2NIGHT – Midweek 

Bookings now being taken.  4 places of the 6 are gone. 

We arrive about 10am on Monday and meet at the cafe. All our belongings can be left at the accomm. office till checkin at 3pm. Our first sketches will be along the foreshore to the see the interiors of the buildings straight ahead. Each day after breakfast we’ll sketch till lunch, then later till about 4pm. In the evening we can enjoy wining & dining in our own mansion and the company of like minded folk.

Our mission will be to create your own Sketch Journal of our time on the Island.

Some suggestions – sketch your art materials and the travel bag you are bringing. Breakfast, the ferry ride, arriving at the cafe, first view of our home on the hill, your room, etc etc.- you get the idea. We’ll explore the variety of  sketch subjects all over the island and record as much as possible, from cranes and wharfs, convict cells, fauna & flora, harbour aspects to small closeups round hidden corners. Tutoring happens as we go. You’ll have a wonderful visual diary of the 3days.

We have a big old Federation house to ourselves, with beautifully furnished bedrooms, and spacious living areas. The gardens are gorgeous and filled with flowers and shrubs, starting at the front and wrapping all the way round. There’s an enormous lawn for outdoor dining – any time of day, and right next door there is even a tennis court.
