Our first Monet in Camden

We held our first Monet Masterclass in Camden over the Anzac Day long weekend in April.

The facilities are beautifully appointed, spacious, quiet and comfortable, exactly what we want for a relaxed day of painting.

This is the venue for our art classes at Camden, in Sydney's south-west. This is the venue for our art classes at Camden, in Sydney's south-west.

Three final paintings by the students. Notice that they are all different, yet they are all recognisably the same scene, and in the same style.

This is truly living, breathing art! It demonstrates the great legacy left us by the masters of western art. They have left us a body of work within which we can learn and grow at the same time.

We had a very enjoyable day, enjoyed a gourmet lunch, and are looking forward to next month's masterclass - more Monet!
