Come and paint alongside painters & descendants of iconic artist Albert Namatjira and experience, absorb and practice their approach.

Hermannsburg school artists have followed the watercolour tradition since the 50s and are now sought after exhibiting watercolour artists, represented by Iltja Ntjarra Many Hands Art Centre. This workshop is a rare and coveted opportunity for members of the public to paint alongside the artists, learning, absorbing and practicing their approach.

Gloria Pannka and Lenie Namatjira, direct granddaughters of Albert Namatjira  will sit among participants and paint with them, talking and offering advice in a quiet, informal setting. This is an immersive workshop process, directive is often gentle, mostly the artists lead by letting participants observe them painting. Participants will be given paper and access to a brush and paints. They will be encouraged to attempt their own landscape painting during the workshop, which they can keep.
