The Cedars Mindful Art Class
Join South Australian artist Gemma Rose Brook for an art workshop at this historic home.

Discover your inner creative and connect to nature whilst nestled amongst the Adelaide Hills landscape that inspired one of Australia’s greatest painters, Sir Hans Heysen.

An inspiring drawing and watercolour class taught by South Australian Artist Gemma Rose Brook at the historic home of Sir Hans Heysen, ‘The Cedars’.

Over a blissful two hours in the native bushland that inspired some of Australia’s most well-known works of art, you will learn to connect to nature through painting and drawing.

Discover The Cedars property and the history of the Heysen family as you learn to use a variety of mediums and tools to capture the essence of the mighty gum trees that have stood for hundreds of years and ultimately work on a final watercolour or gouache painting.

Materials including brushes, watercolours, gouache and paper will be supplied, however if you prefer to use your own materials you are more than welcome to bring them along.

Spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the Adelaide Hills having fun, learning a new skill and relaxing amongst an inspiring landscape.
