Lord Howe Island

Watercolour Retreat with Cheryl Bruce

15 - 22nd March 2025
Lord Howe Island Art Retreat 

Embark on a creative odyssey on Lord Howe Island with our small group watercolour workshop, an immersive experience tailored for art enthusiasts seeking to master the mesmerising art of seascapes, landscapes and atmospheric skies, mostly painting and sketching in our travel sketchbooks.  Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Lord Howe's coastal wonders, this en plein air workshop promises to elevate your watercolour and travel sketching skills.

Led by accomplished artist Cheryl Bruce, the workshop invites participants to delve into learning the techniques to render the ebb and flow of waves, the dance of light on water, and the ever-changing drama of Lord Howe's skies.


Whether you're a seasoned watercolourist or a novice eager to explore the medium, this workshop offers a nurturing environment to hone your craft. Join us for a week of inspiration, creativity, and camaraderie, as you immerse yourself in art amidst the natural wonders of Lord Howe Island.
