Tour Details


 We look forward to taking our students on a creative and colourful adventure in beautiful Lombok.

An inspiring and enchanting island, we will be staying at Puri Mas Resort and Spa with views of the Bali coastline including Mount Agung which can be seen majestically rising above the cloud line, truly magnificent sight when the sun sets behind it.

We will journal and collect ideas from our travels and surroundings to create a permanent memory of this idyllic place.

We will also learn about different mediums including oil paints and ways to use colour positioning, contrast and texture to maximise the effect of our paintings.


Nicholas Perrin

Having travelled extensively and with over 20 years’ experience as a professional artist Nick’s work is high colour, high contrast realism with a surreal twist.  After many successful solo exhibitions, mainly in Melbourne, there are also collections of his work in Ireland, Greece, England and the US.

During your stay in Bali/Lombok Nick will be discussing colour, light and depth using contrast, colour combination and texture to achieve this with exercises in oils including palette knife techniques and demonstrations showing how to maximise the impact of these methods.


Meg Hayley

Meg Hayley has been painting for over 20 years and teaching for more than 10. With lessons given to a wide range of talents from beginners to art teachers.

 Specialising in water-based mediums and more recently mixed media working with alcohol inks, flow mediums and resins her work is expressive, free flowing and full of colour, reflecting her bright positive spirit, it is a true representation of herself.

I draw my inspiration from my new environment and my travels to Greece and Sydney’s south coastal region. Living in South Gippsland and opening a gallery in the last two years has had a big influence on my work. The tidal flows and rugged coastline have inspired me, to be free and playful. The daily walks and peaceful environment have helped me to developed a completely different approach to my work. Creative conscience, awareness of nature’s palette of colours and textures. In this trip I would like to help people develop their own style with my guidance and knowledge of techniques, a passion for colour and design. We feel Lombok will have an inspirational influence on our creativity.
