Watercolour Memoirs

A Painting and Writing Creative Retreat

10 November - 12 November 2017

Join artist Kathy Karas and Rie Natalenko, author of The Family Memory Project for a unique creative experience at Jacks Corner Retreat in the beautiful Kangaroo Valley.

Revisit the past with paint and pen. Relax. Remember. Reconnect with your past.

With Kathy's expert guidance you will paint in watercolour and mixed media from your own images. You will immerse yourself in the stories surrounding the image and with Dr Rie's help, you will learn how to preserve those stories.

You don't need any previous artistic or writing experience.

TOURS

A for artists, art lovers and people who appreciate art. We will be stopping at Ikea so those artists amongst you can get my help on how to frame your artworks. We have also planned a stop at one of the best Art Supply stores in Sydney giving you the chance to stock up on all your art supplies.

Enjoy time at interesting Art Galleries, The Rocks Market and a stop at The Grounds of Alexandria.

Don’t you like hanging out with people who love what you love? People, who think like you do? Join us as we head for the mountains.

We will be visiting Art Galleries in Wentworth Falls, Katoomba and Blackheath as well as visiting the Hydro Majestic where you will have time to look around, buy lunch and enjoy the views.

Top it all off with an art demonstration (and a prize of an original artwork by me) a bus to chauffeur you around and a chance to see my latest exhibition “Home and Away”, memoirs of a travelling artist, at Gallery One88 in Katoomba.

TRIPS

Come with me on this two-week trip to Venice, Florence and Cortona where I show you how to capture your memories of a lifetime in paint. Imagine painting in the canals and laneways of Venice to the beauty of Tuscany staying in Florence and the medieval hillside town of Cortona home of "Under the Tuscan Sun".

I hold daily painting demonstrations and workshops in the beautiful places that we stay.  These trips are fully organised by Cindy Reid from Travel Charm and together we host a trip filled with plenty of time for sightseeing, relaxation, and fun, with nothing to do but enjoy yourself.
