The Course


Annie Herron is a art teacher who has taught art to all ages for forty years. She has been an exhibiting artist for the last 20 years. She has a regular solo exhibition at Barry Stern gallery, Paddington, NSW and has exhibited throughout Australia. She is a painter and a sculptor. Google will give more details.

The course is a five day residential art class at Annie’s 420 acre farm, Kimbri, high on the western edge of the Blue Mountains of NSW. The class is designed to meet the needs of all comers, whether they be beginners, intermediate or more advanced painters. We run separate courses catering for each. Annie’s maxim is that anyone can learn to draw and paint - its just another learned skill. Then how far you take it is a matter for you. The studio is a well lit converted shearing shed with two combustion fires to keep you warm on chilly mountain days.

                                            THE COURSE

We start working through a range of drawing techniques and mediums and then progress to acrylic and mixed media paintings. The beginners class suits all standards as it covers a broad field and allows people to take each exercise as far as they can. Many more advanced painters use the beginners class as a way of “unblocking” and looking at their art afresh. In the advanced classes we work with oils or artists acrylics. In the 5 days of either class we work both in the studio and out in the landscape attacking colour, composition and perspective and general picture making problems. Course numbers are kept to a maximum of 12 people.

All materials are supplied throughout the week.
