Barry John Raybould Cape Town Virtual Art Academy Workshop Locations

I am excited to be coming out to Cape Town in November of this year to meet my Virtual Art Academy students and to give a series of plein air painting workshops.

This thread is for all the students who have signed up to my Cape Town workshop that will run from Sunday, November 11th - Thursday, 15, 2012.

The purpose of the thread is for students to discuss and agree between themselves the best painting locations for each of the five days of the workshop. Each day will be a different location. The first day should be near the Newlands area.

The announcement for the workshop is on the South Africa painting workshop blog.
For pricing and registration information see: Barry's website: other painting workshops - South Africa

Re: Barry John Raybould Cape Town Virtual Art Academy Workshop Locations

Hey guys I think Kirstenbosch would be a great place to kick off - the Goldfields Hall and tearoom at the top where Art Portfolio regularly has art exhibitions. Please lets get a conversation going about where people would like to do Plein Air in the CT area. I suggest Southern Peninsula, Hout Bay and Kirstenbosch.

The current list of potential painting locations is:
1. Kirstenbosch botanical gardens
2. Kalk Bay for harbour and seascape
3. Hout Bay for harbour, beach, views of the bay
4. V&A Waterfront for Harbour scenes
5. Camps Bay beach or Bakoven for beach scenes and sunsets
6. Signal Hill for bird eye views of the city and Table Mountain plus forest
7. Noordhoek beach and Chapmans Peak drive for spectacular views and scenery
8. Constantia for vineyards
9. Buitenverwachting for vineyards
10. City Bowl Flower Sellers of Adderley Street
11. The Bo-Kaap (Cape Malay Quarter) with brightly coloured houses (good for color studies)
12. Durbanville Nature Reserve
13. The Greater Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve
14. Southern Peninsula

Welcome alexan! Almost all the places on the Cape Town and Clarens workshops have now been booked, so you got in just in time! We will be putting together a tentative list of the painting locations over the next month or so hopefully. Some of the more experienced painters are scouting out plein air painting locations for us to all meet and paint, and also trying to come up with a contingency plan in case we cannot paint outside.
Warm regards,
Barry

Re: Barry John Raybould Cape Town Virtual Art Academy Workshop Locations

One of my students told me about this art supplies shop in Cape Town in case you are looking for somewhere in South Africa to buy art materials. Apparently they import materials from various European suppliers.

Re: Barry John Raybould Cape Town Virtual Art Academy Workshop Locations

Just a quick note to everyone. The Cape Town and Clarens workshops are both now full. There are already several people on the waiting list for Cape Town (in case of any cancellations) so the best option would be to try to get on the Knysna workshop where there are still a few places left.

Regarding painting locations, the first two days of the Cape Town workshop are going to be held in Kalk Bay. A local artist has kindly offered her studio space for us all to meet. It looks like a beautiful place!

Barry

Did you find a hotel or B & B where we can stay yet?
