A Plains painting by Rowen Matthews


Rowen Matthews has always made a life from making and teaching art. He is a professional artist and art educator. At Little Kickerbell, he has the space and magic environment to run fully-catered residential painting workshops. The shearers’ quarters have been re-fitted for self-contained, longer term artists’ residencies. The homestead contains an extraordinary collection of contemporary Australian art and an extensive library of art books. His workshop model is innovative and simple: participants get pampered with Cathy’s amazing food, so all they have to think about all day is their art-making, before retiring each night to their private accommodation in the restored bedroom wing.

Contact Rowen at Little Kickerbell for more details about up-coming workshops.
