7 Days of creative explorations... Saturday 28th August through to Sunday 5th September 2021

It's on again.... in 2021.  A unique experience of studio, en plein air, abstract and landscape, painting, drawing and photography in Australia’s premier, mountain desertreserve, Arkaroola Wilderness Resort, northern Flinders Ranges, South Australia.

Arkaroola Wilderness Resort and the surrounding mountains, waterholes and gorges represent some of the most photogenic and ‘paintergenic’ landscapes to be found anywhere in Australia.

Join artists, teachers, mentors and cousins Peter Griffen, Denise Lithgow and Paul Macklin for an outstanding creative adventure in one of Australia’s premier mountain-desert, nature reserves.

This workshop will immerse you in...
• Spectacular, rugged mountain landscapes, broad desert vistas, intimate time-worn waterholes and soaring sunlit canyons.
• The perfect environment to develop, challenge or extend your ‘en plein air’ painting, drawing or photography skills.
• Creative simulation from three very different and capable artist-teachers and the company of like-minded artists and students.
• A journey of creative discovery.

Do you have a "non-painting" partner that would love to come and hang out, there is loads to do at the Ark, so they will be busy or they can sit by the pool and read a book!  They can attend for $1950 which inlcudes their accommodation for the 8 nights plus all meals, this doesn't include them coming out on the trips each day with the artists and this will depend on how many artists we have in attendance.
