At the end of September, the Atelier will be joined by Sally Ryan from Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney for a 3 day intensive portraiture workshop. This will be a great opportunity for our local artists and also for people to come and experience Bathurst.
Australia’s Oldest Inland Settlement has always attracted the attention of great artists because of our stunning light, crisp air, wonderful scenery and marvellous texture. We are planning for our weekend intensives to continue a tradition of artists travelling to our region for inspiration and the shear enjoyment of our culture. We are partnering with local winemakers and foodies to create opportunities to discover the richness of the place we love and live in.
Places are limited so it’s worth booking soon so you don’t miss Sally’s experienced tuition at this event and so we can plan a full range of experience tailored just for you!
The first terms of the Atelier have proven successful with a good band of artists enjoying each other’s company, great tuition, skilful models, and an inspiring space. We’ve even kept warm through our first Bathurst winter as the insulation of the old cool rooms has kept a steady temperature.
So now we are looking to expand our offerings to different media, additional tutors and new friends to join our artistic journey. We want to know what kinds of classes, format and tuition you are interested in, so check out Mixed Media Saturday morning and let us know on the contact form what you would like from us next.

Atelier dAIRY CReATivE first drawing class underway today!
The space illuminated from the skylights above and through Tim Miller’s long earned experience; the nervous enthusiasm as people gathered and met for the first time and at the beginning of their journey together over the coming weeks; the room filled with artefacts and opportunity…
Tim led the first eager students into the fundamentals of drawing… for some, the first time they had appreciated where to begin, for others, a timely reminder and perhaps clearer expression. Tim showed his capacity to distill so many years of his own artistic experience and theory into simple principles that can be understood and applied from the beginning and right through an art journey.
Some time on your own to think, to contemplate, to rediscover perspective…
Understanding anatomy and beginning with structure.
Under the direction of Master Tutor, Tim Miller, participants will have the opportunity of drawing from the model in the sky lit spaces at the top of the recently renovated historic building on the corner of Bentinck and Princes St, Bathurst. The Atelier mode of tuition allows students of all levels of experience and capacity to share together as they express and grow at an individual rate and under the personal attention of the tutor.
Class sizes are limited to maximise the benefit to each student and ensure a great ‘feel’ amongst the community of artists. Book your easel soon!
Artists and aspiring artists are gathering in Bathurst at the Atelier dAIRY CReATivE preparing for the first formal tutorial studio session on Tuesday 1st May. Tim Miller, the Master Artist at the core of the Atelier is enthusiastic about sharing his many years of experience in Life Drawing from the model as he begins a 10 week cycle introducing the fundamentals of drawing.
The recently refurbished cool rooms on the corner of Bentinck and Princes Streets make an inspiring space in which to learn a new hobby or hone a long standing skill. The clerestory lighting reflects the top-lit studios of Europe from which so many of the masterpieces emerged and in which so many of the masters trained. Bathurst has long been a destination and locale that has inspired the creativity and lighted the insight of Australia’s renowned artists – the new Atelier continues this tradition for the next generations, bringing masters and beginners together in a space that will ignite a new enthusiasm for the arts.
Places are limited for the first 2 Studios that will run on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Reserve your easel by booking online, now.
