I am an art teacher who has taught art to all ages for over forty years and have been exhibiting for the last 30 years. I have a regular solo exhibition at Barry Stern gallery, Paddington, NSW and have exhibited throughout Australia. I am a painter and a sculptor. You can Google ‘Annie Herron’ for more details on my recent exhibitions, classes and commissions.

The course is a five day residential art class at my family’s 420 acre farm, Kimbri, high on the western edge of the Blue Mountains of NSW near the picturesque village of Rydal. The class is designed to meet the needs of all comers, whether they be beginners, intermediate or more advanced painters. We run separate courses catering for each. My maxim is that anyone can learn to draw and paint – its just another learned skill. How far you take it is a matter for you. The studio is a well lit converted shearing shed with two combustion fires to keep you warm on chilly mountain days. The courses run in spring and autumn – the best months to be out in the country.

Anne ‘s Statement for the Trail


he homestead complex is set in a rambling country garden complete with vegetable garden and orchards.

All the meals are in the large kitchen of the main house except for lunches in the garden or picnics in the surrounding countryside during alfresco workshops.

The homestead is large enough for the group to gather around the fire or for individuals to escape to a secluded corner.

There is an extensive art library and general  books on offer plus a billiard room while outdoors there are established gardens, a tennis court and boules courtyard, a large producing olive grove to explore and a herd of Belted Galloway cows to paint.

The beautiful surrounding countryside is perfect for long walks.

Kimbri is an easy 2 1/2 hours west of Sydney, near the historic and picturesque village of Rydal.
