What you'll do

No artistic skill or experience is needed, just some curiosity and an open mind.

We'll use art-making to observe, express and grow -- in a fun way. The 'right side' of the brain concentrates on the present. It also focuses on being rather than doing, and pictures rather than words. We'll give it a chance to express itself.

To begin, you'll do some short drawing exercises focusing on mindful observation and exploring perception.

This will be followed by a coffee/tea break.

Next, I'll encourage you to forget all about what makes good or bad art as you explore a theme of your own in more depth. You'll choose from a variety of art media and we'll see what bubbles up.
Other things to note
I've damaged my drawing hand and am undergoing rehab for it.
Generally, I don't make art with guests anyway. You are the focus.
I'm happy to adjust the time of the experience to suit your schedule, if possible.

Meet your host, Gregory

  • Identity verified
Born and bred in Sydney, I'm a prize-winning artist/illustrator with a 30 year career, who spent 20 years living in Japan studying and working. Initially I studied drawing for 4 years at Art School in Canberra. My post-graduate study was in printmaking in Kyoto. I also graduated with a Master of Art Therapy in 2016. Alain de Botton says that art is a tool that enables us to become better versions of ourselves. I couldn't agree more.

Where you'll be

Cremorne Point has spectacular views of Sydney Harbour and the city!
I have great views of the Harbour Bridge & the Opera House from the 3 arched windows of a top-floor apartment of a 1911 Arts & Crafts building.
I recommend you walk along the Cremorne Reserve Path from the wharf to my place.
There is a cafe at Cremorne Point Wharf.

Rated 4.81 out of 5 from 26 reviews.

Must-try for travelers who are into art therapy and mindfulness. Gregory will guide you through a thorough process using art as a form of expression and introspection. On top of that you have access to quality materials, a nice and cozy art space, and a spectacular view of Sydney. Two thumbs up!

It was such a beautiful experience. As a tourist, you will probably miss this area in Sydney. Serene and elegant. Greg is super decent. And the studio got amazing view. You will feel challenged during the workshop and be inspired by the end.

Activité très intéressant et enrichissante. Gregory nous aide à porter une réflexion sur nos activités. J'ai trouvé que le prix était un peu élevé pour la durée de l'expérience.
