Installation at M16 Gallery, Canberra. Exhibition Orpheus Island: From Coral to Coal by Kurt Brereton, 2017


ArtStayz is a new art workshop venture initiated by south coast visual and digital media artist, writer and past academic, Dr Kurt Brereton.

The simple aim is to combine art workshops with the pleasure of a weekend getaway that includes good food and great artistic company in the beautiful natural coastal village setting of Currarong on Jervis Bay, south of Sydney.

Kurt Brereton is a well known art teacher of art workshops over many years. He has taught at Hazelhurst Regional Art Gallery, the Shoalhaven Regional Art Gallery, Bundanon Art Center and more recently, the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum.

Kurt has taught at various universities, TAFEs, and high schools. He is currently running HSC Art mentoring workshops for local south coast students.

See his art website for details of his exhibitions, books and digital media work –

NOTE: It is hoped that other art teachers will be added to the workshop program as it expands.
