“Attending the end of year retreat was the best decision I made in 2020; five full days of immersive painting, tuition and camaraderie was exactly what I needed. The accommodation was superb – especially the catering. The valley offers breathtaking views and subjects to paint such as Powers Lookout and Paradise Falls. Each year the retreat provides something fresh and exhilarating. Can’t wait for next year!”
