7 days and 7 nights of art and cultural immersion, creative exploration and guided lessons with Melbourne abstract artist Brock Q. Piper.


Come join us on this immersive trip to work, learn and create! If you are interested in improving your art practice, trying something new and discovering the amazing hidden gems of the beautiful island of Bali, we would love you to join us on this exclusive and fully immersive art journey.


This will be a very special week to let your creativity flow and to relax and indulge a little in a slice of paradise. Our small group of creatives will be staying together in a very luxurious private villa in Canggu, in South-West Bali. We will be enjoying an amazing week of morning rituals of yoga, seeing traditional Balinese ceremonies, dining in some of Bali’s best kept secret restaurants and daily lessons in abstraction, life drawing and plein air painting with Brock.


During the week, you will:


•Be able to partake in a wide range of art classes; including life drawing sessions with a model, plein air drawing exercises, abstract painting and landscape studies

•Visit a very famous ceramics studio in Ubud for a private sculptural ceramics workshop. All work made in the class will be fired so you can take them home with you at the end of the week

•Visit the traditional water temples of South Bali

•Have the opportunity to take part in morning yoga classes to connect with your own wellness

•Enjoy fresh and delicious healthy breakfasts every morning, served by our lovely villa staff

•Witness traditional Balinese dancing ceremonies

•Learn some great tricks to taking amazing travel photographs

•Dine in some of our favourite local and western restaurants in South Bali


Bali is a beautiful island, often only seen through the lens of the touristy parts of south Bali. This trip will give you the opportunity to explore a very different side of Bali, seeing Bali as artists. Most importantly, having a whole week to dedicate to your art and to develop and grow your artistic practice is something that is so hard to make time for in Australia. This trip gives us the chance to open up to some exciting new possibilities in your own creative journeys, to explore new ideas and techniques for your work. 


Bali is a very special place to our hearts as we got married here last year. We have spent a lot of time in Bali over the years so we know the island very well. We still try to come at least once a year, to give ourselves the opportunity to relax, unwind and reconnect with our creative selves in amongst the busy year. We would love to share some of these special places and experiences with other like minded creatives.


Our trip commences at the villa on the afternoon of Saturday 21st September and ends on the morning of Saturday 28th September.
