Service Description

Brisbane artists Kate Quinn and Emily Day, and sensational guest artist Yani Lenehan, are coming to the Hunter Valley for two magical days in March 2023. You will enjoy a very special day of art, food, and wine, set in the beautiful grounds of Kelman Vineyard at Polkobin. Running on either Saturday the 11th or Sunday the 12th of March, from 9am-6pm, you will learn how to paint a simple floral still life in a small group, in a relaxed and encouraging environment. Suitable for beginners, as well as those with some hobby painting experience, you will spend a day learning new artistic skills while chatting and laughing with new or old friends. At lunchtime we will enjoy a delicious catered picnic on the grass overlooking the trellised vines of the vineyard. The Kelman winemakers will join us to serve a glass or two of their delicious wines - to help loosen our brushstrokes ;) After class, from 5-6, we will enjoy a sumptuous platter of cheeses with a wine tasting at the cellar door. Yani, Emily and Kate will spread the small class of maximum 16 students into 'acrylics' and 'oils' painting groups, and will provide creative guidance in a non-judgemental, kind and supportive way. If you book with friends we will make sure you are seated together, and if you are coming on your own, we will ensure you are seated next to a friendly group and get extra special care! Emily, Kate, and Yani look forward to welcoming you to a very unique day in the Hunter. What to bring: Please wear clothes you don't mind getting paint on. All materials, food and drinks are provided. You may wish to bring a cardboard box to help you safely transport your painting home. Paintings are 30x30cm and may not be dry by the end of your class.
