Rottnest re­turn for artist re­treat

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

ARTIST Ken Wadrop spent eight months liv­ing on Rottnest Is­land be­fore he started art school.

Now, decades later, he is host­ing an Artist Re­treat on the is­land.

The South Fre­man­tle artist will run the work­shop from Au­gust 8-11 for up to 15 peo­ple for the sec­ond year.

Par­tic­i­pants will spend three days on the ‘en plein air’ style, which means paint­ing out­doors.

“It’s not a wide­spread type of paint­ing in WA but as a move­ment it’s big in Amer­ica and Europe,” Wadrop said.

“I’m a re­al­ist painter but this style is dif­fer­ent type of work for me.”

Last year, par­tic­i­pants pro­duced about six pieces each over the three days. Works will be ex­hib­ited in the Salt Store on the is­land.

For book­ings, call 9432 9118.
