I have admired Robert Bateman's paintings since I was a little girl. So, it was a huge honour and pleasure to be able to participate in a 6 day seminar with him this October 17th to 22nd. The event took place at Hollyhock Adult Learning Center on Cortes Island.
The grounds and buildings at Hollyhock are beautiful. It was a very unique and special place to visit.
There was a lot of information to absorb in a relatively short time. There were 9 other students in my session, a very small and intimate group. I enjoyed their company and hope to keep in touch with them. Some people traveled from as far away as the Yukon, Toronto, Sussex-England, and California. Over-all the experience was amazing,(exclusive of the weather!)
