Paint-Away Long Weekend Workshop

Paint Away weekend


June 14 -16, 2013

There will be a painting weekend hosted by artists Karen Longden-Sarron and Liné Ryan du Preez over the long weekend in June. Come and join in and immerse yourself in the picturesque beauty of Riebeek Kasteel for a special & creative weekend, or if you live nearby, you may join in the art sessions only and enjoy lunch with the other artists, as a Day Painter – we’d love to welcome you!

Imagine peaceful, pleasure-filled painting sessions under a graceful 300 year old oak tree or out in the country, eating sumptuous fresh country cuisine to the sound of your companions’ laughter and gentle French music playing in the background, the cosy bedrooms for a good night’s rest and the wonderful company of like-minded people. All this under the guidance of two professional artists to teach, advise and inspire you!

Whatever your level of painting, in Oils, Acrylics or Watercolours, the tutors will help you to take your art to the next level! We will go painting en Plein-air to capture the spirit of the valley and surrounds. We have an indoor studio area should the weather be inclement. There’s also lots to visit in your free time, even an art gallery!

You will be lodged in one of two cosy Guesthouses for the 2 nights, from Friday to Sunday, receive 3 delicious meals a day, morning teas and coffees, art materials and painting tuition.

Whether you are an experienced oil painter or someone who has never held a brush, discover the fun of experimenting with paints. Come and learn to reconnect with, and express, your own innate creativity, in a supportive atmosphere, where you have no preconceived notions of how things should be and can freely express yourself through art, thus developing your own “individual style,” with personalized guidance, within a supportive, relaxed environment, laced with humor. So, if you feel like art is something your life may be lacking, give it a try!

Non-painting partners (sharing) are also welcome, and shall be advised of places to visit in the area if they’re interested.

Limited Space, and rooms are issued on first-come-first-served basis, so Book Now!
