An amazing opportunity for you to meet one of Australia’s special Artists ….
Heinz Krautberger and have him cook a picnic lunch for you – while you paint in his ‘Bonsai Garden’ – not the everyday opportunity I have to say …… According to Phil Brown – The Courier-Mail arts editor and Brisbane News columnist ……….. ‘ Andre van der Kerkhoff aka Heinz Krautberger courts controversy….!’
I wouldn’t want to take that ‘nom de plume’ ……. away from him in any way as I first got to know Heinz when he was painting and exploring the World from the ‘Carlton Arms Hotel’ New York >>>> https://www.galleryand.studio/2017/08/21/andre-van-der-kerkhoff-dancing-with-dragonflies/
Now here is your chance to meet the man and sketch some of his most remarkable artwork …. with a difference | in his amazing and stunning – Bonsai Garden!
