What you'll do
At this all day session (10-4), whilst enjoying sumptuous food, you will create a painting which you can take home and hang on your wall. To begin with, you will have a private viewing of Caroline's art studio at her waterfront home at Alonnah, Bruny Island. Beginning at 10am, over morning tea with locally sourced produce, Caroline will give an hour's presentation of her practice, and will highlight key examples of technique that you will learn during the workshop. At 11am, you will receive materials to begin creating your work, and Caroline will demonstrate, using the view from her studio, how to create your own painting that you can take home at the end of the day. By using simple stencil forms and acrylics, you will begin to build up a beautiful work of shimmering translucent layers echoing the land and the ocean forms you see from the studio. At 12.30 you will receive a light lunch created by local foodies, which you can enjoy on the large studio deck. You can also join Caroline in a walk along the foreshore to learn about the local landmarks in the region, and see what inspires so many artists to choose Bruny Island as their home. At 2pm you will have another hour's session of painting, followed by a group session to talk about the day's progress. Another hour, and you will have completed your work, which can be rolled up and taken home in special packaging provided.

Where you'll be
Caroline's studio is on the waterfront, with unique vistas spanning the ocean from north to south. It takes in spectacular views of Huon Island and the Hartz Ranges, as well as Mount Wellington in the distance, that are a key feature of Caroline's painting practice. Difficult to access from the road, the foreshore walk is easily accessible from her home, and offers a rich palette of rock formations, ocean plant life and distant mountain ranges.
