Single Origin

We just got sponsored by Single Origin - the best roasters in Sydney Town. That means free coffee to keep you awake through all that strenuous brainercise! Nice one :)

Check out this great video filmed at Single O's Gypsy Friday!

Like Minds Collective #1

18th July

Daytime: Outdoor Sketch Session
12PM MIDDAY at the Chinese Gardens of Friendship, in Darling Harbour.

A great place to unwind and start the day out relaxed. There will be plenty of time here to set up for a painting so if you want to bring a box or a small setup -- please do so. Afterwards we will head down at around 3.30 to Dixon St, Chinatown. Another cool area to sketch, more urban and hectic, great shapes and compositions and great characters. Plenty of Yum Cha to satisfy the hungriest of creative types!
