Terry Jarvis - Tasmania WORKSHOP
3 March – 15 March, 2019


DAY 1 Sunday 3 March, 2019 Bicheno

Workshop members will be met at Launceston airport at midday and transferred to the beautiful town of Bicheno. Bicheno is a picturesque town situated on the east coast of Tasmania, it began life as a sealing and whaling town and then transitioned to a coal mining port (shipping coal mined inland at Fingal), but today crayfishing is the largest industry. Tonight the group will meet for welcome drinks and an included dinner.

DAY 2 Monday 4 March, 2019 Bicheno

This morning Terry will commence his first painting workshop with a demonstration and then assist workshop members individually with their work in the beautiful town of Bicheno. Regular critique sessions will be held throughout the tour. Tonight there will be an included dinner.

DAY 3 Tuesday 5 March, 2019 Hobart

After breakfast we will travel by coach to Freycinet National Park. Freycinet National park is a place of rare beauty with its white beaches and bright blue waters overlooked by the pink granite mountains of The Hazards. There is a wide variety of vegetation including wetland, coastal dunes, dry eucalypt forest and orchids that bloom all year round. Terry will perform a demonstration and then it will be your turn to paint while Terry assists tour members with their painting. This afternoon we will continue our journey to Hobart.

DAY 4 Wednesday 6 March, 2019 Hobart

Today we will enjoy a full day of painting in beautiful Hobart with Terry Jarvis. The group will paint the 19th-century waterfront warehouses for which the city is famous. The warehouses were once busy with whalers, soldiers, petty bureaucrats and opportunist businessmen, now they house cafes, restaurants and studios and bustle with shoppers and visitors. In the afternoon we will enjoy a valuable critique session.

DAY 5 Thursday 7 March, 2019 Hobart

This morning we will travel to Richmond for a day of painting. Richmond is a beautiful old town with Georgian cottages of mellow sandstone standing in pretty cottage gardens. Ducks on the Coal River swim to and fro under Australia’s oldest bridge, built by convict labour between 1823-25. In late 2005, the Bridge was recognised as one of Australia’s outstanding historic places and added to the National Heritage List. Terry will demonstrate how to capture the beauty of this picturesque area and assist workshop members with their painting. In the afternoon we will visit the MONA gallery.

DAY 6 Friday 8 March, 2019 Hobart

After breakfast we will travel to Port Arthur for a full day of sightseeing and painting. Between 1830 and 1877 about 12,500 transported convicts were imprisoned at Port Arthur, on the shores of a beautiful bay and set against the tranquil hills and forest of the Tasman Peninsula. Many of the sandstone prison buildings remain and have been preserved. On arrival we will take a tour of the prison giving you an impression of what life might have been like in the 1800s for the convicts, soldiers and civilians. After lunch Terry will paint a demonstration in a good location. We will return to Hobart in the afternoon.

DAY 7 Saturday 9 March, 2019 Hobart

Today is Salamanca market day, and you will have some free time to explore and photograph the market. Terry will find a great painting location around the market area and complete a demonstration. Following this, Terry will assist individual workshop members with their painting.
