En Plein air Painting Workshop in Kiama NSW 9-12 February
Kiama is a well kept secret, a small coastal town 2 hours south of Sydney with a famous blowhole in the rocks near the lighthouse.
Kiama is famous for its blowhole. Nearby is the Pilot’s Cottage Museum which tells the story of Kiama’s colourful past. A very pleasant place to spend painting, sharing with good friends and enjoying fine fare.

Bathurst is a world of painters twice yearly with The Artscenes' Mitchell College of Art. Over 250 artists meet up with over 28 tutors for a week not just painting but with much fun and extra curricular activity.

Sturt Summer School, Mittagong NSW 2-7 January 2013
Sturt Gallery in Mittagong is the oldest School of Art & Craft in Australia and twice a year they hold a Summer and Winter School. As the only watercolourist it was again a full class of 14 of the nicest people and a thoroughly enjoyable week mostly painting around the school of Frensham next door th the Gallery and Cafe.The exceptional thing about Sturt is the top notch variety of other artists in all fields. I did a demonstration in Clubbe Hall on Saturday evening to a great crowd. There wasn't much on TV!
