Sold Out

This Autumn we will be heading back for a special outdoor class in the grounds of Araluen Botanic Park by their lovely lily pond. Araluen is a stunning park nestled amongst the hills in Roleystone, and their grounds have a variety of beautiful plants and features. Our Araluen classes sold out very quickly last year, so you will need to book in as soon as possible.

We will be guiding you through the painting Irises by van Gogh, but you are more than welcome to paint anything else that takes your fancy in the park.

Included in your ticket price is:

  • Entry for 1 person to Araluen Botanic Park on Saturday 11th of May, 2019

  • 2-3 hours of guided painting instruction

  • Scones with Jam & Cream from the Chalet Healy Tearooms served during class

  • Take your finished painting home at the end of class

Our artist today: TBC

When to come? – Araluen is a large park, so we would recommend arriving at around 10am to find a park; purchase a tea or coffee from the Chalet; and locate us in the outdoor amphitheatre! Class starts at 10:30am.

What to bring?

  • Yourself! All painting materials are provided.

  • Araluen is a stunning family friendly location and you are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to have in garden after class, though please note, we will be painting right next to a large pond so any children will need to be supervised.

  • The only food outlet in the park over Autumn is the Chalet Healy Tearooms which are a 5-10 minute walk from the amphitheatre, so you may wish to bring a thermos or snacks (keeping in mind we’ll be providing scones).

What to wear? – We provide you with an apron but recommend wearing something you wouldn't mind getting paint on...just in case! Although acrylic paint is water-soluble, it near impossible to remove once it dries completely.

Please be aware that this is an outdoor class and you will need to dress appropriately for the weather - think sunhats and jumpers / coats as possible necessities.

Please Note: Cabernet and Canvas provides art class instruction services only. Any food included in the ticket price will be provided by the venue. Drinks and extra food may be purchased separately from the venue.
