Last year a number of my students asked that we regularly paint together and of course that was not possible for much of the year. So, in 2021 come with me as I explore some of Melbourne’s great painting spots and enjoy the artistic camaraderie. We will adhere to the public health restrictions at the time of our paint-out, so please be aware of any changes. Bring your mask and all you need to paint en plein air. If there is a suitable venue closely and enough people we may go for pizza and vino afterwards… or perhaps ice cream!
The time of our paint-outs will remain the same throughout the year
