NEWSLETTER JUNE 2018

Posted by Andre Jacobs on Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Hello guys 

A reminder that classes missed cannot be exchanged or caught up, as agreed upon when we first spoke to you when you enquired about classes and stipulated twice in your contract.  Lately many people have asked us to reschedule classes, but regretfully this is not possible.  We operate like any other business.    

And Parents—PLEASE drop and pick-up your kids on time, there is an outside area next to our studios where you can wait for them.

Canvasses can no longer be stored at the Kempton Studios, it really restricts our space.

CLARENS

Hesther, Adele (from Hong Kong) and I and some other 13 artists went back to school to learn some more tricks and techniques with Colley Whisson from Australia, organised by SA Artist Magazine.  I loved his broad stroke approach to painting, and the stay at Sunnyside farm revealed a fascinating place, complete with a farm mess hall, interesting boerekos, Friday lunch braai, very quirky traditions, over-friendly horses, fresh lemon cake in the afternoon and the 90year old lady (the owner) living next to the kitchen!  Here are some pics.

PATERNOSTER

Well Paternoster retreat is sort of fully booked, and the majority are people who are returning!  Must be the food…

FRENCH ART AND FOOD DAY 29 JULY

I’ll be hosting a French food and art day on this Sunday.  It is also in preparation for our new kitchen that will be operating one Sunday every month from Spring, and then also open as a coffee shop after that. 

The day will comprise French flair, a French art project and a gastronomic menu for those attending.  More details next month!  AJ
