ART SUMMER SCHOOL 2017 captures and celebrates exploration and creativity, bringing out your inner artist and fueling your passion to make art. Thea Bates of Art In An Hour and Michael O'Hanlon of Eureka have years of experience teaching and making their own visual art. They‘ll share with participants their skills and love of drawing from life, both the human form and treasures from the natural environment.
For three days, feed your creativity with like-minded people in the fabulous Abbotsford Convent and its gardens on Melbourne’s famous Yarra River. Be curious, try new things, feel freedom in your art and learn from the open studio process.
