Have Brush Will Travel
Once a year members head off to the great outdoors for a week of plein air painting, staying at a campground where there are cabins and caravan sites. In 2013 we went to Urunga on the mid north Coast while in past years we’ve travelled to Stanthorpe Qld, Armidale, Gloucester, Mudgee Seal Rocks, Bombah Point and in 2015 Kingscliff and the Tweed Regional Gallery. One year a few ventured off to the Flinders Ranges SA. Up to 20 members participate, painting together at selected locations during the day and enjoying a cool drink and dinner round the campfire in the evening.We normally head off in autumn. Non painting partners are welcome as there’s always plenty to do.
Day: 1st Saturday of the month

There's no better way to sharpen and improve your drawing skills than to draw from life. While enjoying the company of fellow artists, we use pencil, charcoal, watercolour, pastels and conte crayon to create fresh lively drawings. Although untutored many are more than happy to assist anyone not totally confident of their ability.
Life Drawing sessions are open to the public and not just HVFAA members. Fee of $15 includes tea and coffee and the cost of the model.
