This is a great opportunity to learn from an in-demand, multi award-winning artist. The Kimberley provides an ancient, visceral landscape that thrums with nature's colour, sound and movement.
The workshop is best suited to intermediate and advanced artists. Courageous beginners are welcome but may find it challenging. Judith works hard to support her students to take up the challenge and push the boundaries of their work to finish the trip having created a solid collection of new pieces to go on with, and perhaps some near completion.
The itinerary includes 6 days art tuition by Judith in the bush studio and at various scenic locations, complimentary welcome champagne, the opportunity to fish for barramundi, bull buggy ride, aboriginal art sites, hikes, two nights camping, exhibition, party and a rest day.
Judith White Kimberley workshop will return in July 2020.

And how about pulling up beside cool waterholes for lunch and a swim?
Imagine a week of riding steady and willing horses with the girls - add a dash of wine, fun and plenty of adventure. Come with us, bring mates or come on your own. Set your own pace from a fun, fully optional itinerary that includes a day at Wyndham Races, barramundi fishing, cultural evening, daily rides of 2 - 3 hours and one full day.
You do not have to be a horse rider to have a great time on this trip. If you are a non-rider, you are welcome to join the support crew (in a vehicle) when horse rides go out - which is just as much fun!
