2023 Klein Karoo Art Retreat

I just had the pleasure of joining Sharon’s 1 week art retreat in the Klein Karoo. What a wonderful experience all round! We created a wonderful art journal by exploring the area, did plein air and studio painting. Sharon gave us useful lessons on using pen and ink, offered different techniques to try out and widened my general knowledge about painting/drawning.
The team spirit was great and the group of ladies from all over the world experienced real friendship.
Last but not least, the food and the accommodation were excellent! Just amazed me how much time women can spend talking about dieting😆 We all couldn’t stop eating and felt guilty.
I very much enjoyed to plunge into a perfectly organized event without worrying about anything and just enjoying it!
I highly recommend traveling and painting with Sharon!

The Karoo Art Retreat was my introduction to water colours and travel journaling after only painting with oils.  I met Sharon for the first time at her Klein Karoo Retreat (located at The Retreat at Groenfontein) and it was the most fabulous week of sketching and painting and just enjoying the beautiful surrounds and the lovely group of fellow enthusiasts.  I learned a huge amount from Sharon and enjoyed applying these skills long after I returned home.  Subsequently I booked the Richtersveld Art Adventure and had another amazing week with Sharon of sketching, painting and experiencing another very beautiful part of our country.  Looking forward to the next adventure! – Daryl-Ann

“2022 Tankwa Karoo & Cederberg Art retreat – what an experience. Sharon’s organisational skills are the best. The trip, accommodation, art and painting techniques were well planned and executed! I traveled on roads I have never been on before, I learnt to really observe nature and surrounds. One of the best experiences in my life and hope to some day join again. Lisi van Zyl”

“Tankwa Karoo & Cederberg Art Retreat – The best art adventure!
Other than the breathtaking scenery and beautiful places we got to stay at and experience, Sharon’s skills and knowledge made this retreat one to remember.
Well organised, we learned a lot, saw even more and formed bonds with mindful, strong creatives.
This was definitely a trip I’ll never forget! Magdal “
