Photographs from our final week

Matt and Jenny’s arrival on Monday brought a new energy to the farm, giving everyone a needed boost for their final week of intense work in the studio. Whether it was a life drawing session with Matt, a portrait project with Jenny, inspiring artist talks, or a one on one tutorial the new perspective brought a freshness to the work created.

While some stretched canvases for oil paintings others made site specific & temporary sculptures or diligently worked in the darkroom. There was of course still time for swimming in the lake, for Will to bake scones and spend an afternoon fishing. A special thanks to Sophia, Christie and Arietta for catching our dinner. Will and Sarah were also successful in catching fish, but we let them back to fatten for another day. Ned wins the prize for hooking the most fish, but never managed to get any of them ashore. Other activities included another night shoot and a ghost tour of Kelly’s Trees where some people swore they heard the sound of Kelly’s chains.

Our session ended with a desert of Banoffi Pie and a late night critique of the weeks accomplishments. We would like to congratulate this years participants for their hard work and dedication. Its evident that your efforts paid off in the end. Enjoy the rest of your summer, and know that you will be missed!
