The Cedars

Mindful Art Class

Sandra Johnstone botanical art
Capture the Colourful Botanicals of The Cedars

Tap into your inner artist and create a botanical masterpiece at Hans Heysen’s stunning estate, The Cedars.

For far too many, there is not enough time in the day to stop and smell the roses, let alone capture them in pencil. Yet the benefits of slowing down and mindfully focusing on an activity such as drawing or painting are plentiful.

In this skillfully guided art class, let your inner creative loose at the estate of a revered Australian landscape painter, Sir Hans Heysen. The beauty of this property inspired two of Australia’s most famous painters – Hans Heysen and his daughter Nora Heysen, the first female to win the Archibald Prize.

Come and immerse yourself in the same stunning environment that inspired their award-winning works and create your own masterpiece while immersing yourself in an activity that will pull you in the present moment.

Through two hours of art indulgence, you will discover the detail of gum leaves and blossoms with artists’ coloured pencils.

Under the tutelage of talented botanic artist Sandra Johnston, develop your own creative skills and leave the class with your own frame-worthy artwork.

Art materials to be provided, although participants are welcome to bring their own Artists’ quality coloured pencils.
