We have just finished our first ‘Absolute Beginners Painting Course’ (12th overall of the year) and it seemed to go off very well. We had a lovely group from all over- Johannesburg, Ceres, RooiEls, Cape Town and Local and congratulations to the participants for getting stuck into it nicely… Dale and Mel took the artist through some basic painting exercises and the participants painted four paintings whilst with the Elliotts over the three days.
The non painting participants joined us for dinner at our home on the Tuesday night and other non studio tasks and we had the most lovely supper at De Villiers Country Lodge on Monday evening.
Thank you to Johannie and Annarie Barnard for all the care and effort they put into this fantastic evening and if anyone is looking for catering services or a restaurant venue, I can highly recommend DCL.
We will miss the good times and friends we made, but we will maintain detached contact with the artists and monitor their progress in the months to come.
Below are some photographs of the participants on the course:
