We are off to Ubud again in 2020.
June 14th -21st.
8 days and 7 nights of creative inspiration, unique outings and stimulating art projects.
*We currently have 4 places remaining
We have designed our next Art Retreat to give you a rich and diverse experience of Ubud. There will be plenty of art making and loads of opportunities to work one on one with Fi while you work with a variety of materials and develop your skills and your own awareness of your ‘style’.
Then you have your afternoons free for time to indulge, play and relax just the way you wIsh to.
You don’t need any artistic skills to be part of this - we adjust our program around you and your level of experience.
Our centrally located hotel is situated on the edge of Ubud’s busy area but in a very quiet, local traffic only location - close enough for easy access to town ( 10 minute walk) to the shopping and restaurant strips.
We will be working on a range of achievable art projects - suitable for beginners and the more independent artist- including painting on board while out in the environment (Plein Air Painting), designing a collage image for a textile production project and learning how to use and develop our visual diary to support our work as we enjoy our travels ( this incorporates, pen, watercolour, gouache, graphite)
We will be enjoying our art making experiences in a variety of locations including sunrise at the rice terraces, Water Temples, gardens and at dance performances.
We take in traditional culinary experiences, collecting spices at the markets, traditional painting with local artists and local museums showing collected Balinese art. Walking and sketching the Champhuan Ridge, and enjoying the traditional Fire dance and dinner at night.
After a stimulating first four days, we should be ready for a slower pace and we start to embed ourselves and focus on completing a step by step project created by Fi, using one of her own designs to be inspired by. You can choose from a variety of her designs to replicate and she will guide you, as you recreate this for yourself, or if you are more independent, you can work on your own design inspired by your travels. Our finished work will then be professionally photographed ( back in Aus) and then used to create a professionally produced scarf/ wrap - and posted to you.
