The Facilitators

Michael Pope
Artist and Teacher

I am an Australian visual artist and high school teacher who has a passion for travel and drawing. My career in schools and galleries has enabled me to become an accomplished workshop facilitator who specialises in leading art workshops for beginners and more advanced art students alike. Whether it's the pleasure of an artistic holiday or getting into a seven-day art intensive in paradise, I will help you develop your observational drawing skills and techniques.

Gerald Soworka
Artist and Workshop Instructor

Join Michael and me in the ever-inspiring, lush, exotic culture of Ubud and let us help you take your drawing to another place.

I'm passionate about getting people drawing, especially from life. The artistic, let alone the psychological, empowerment of truly, clearly  seeing the world around you is second to none. What a great asset to travelling the world and travelling through life.

I've got over 25 years experience as an adult educator and exhibiting artist, and now a new found love of Bali. I relish helping people find and develop their individual expression through a thorough technical competence and their own personal creative flair.
