DVAS - Diamond Valley Art Society


We are excited to welcome Diamond Valley Art Society (DVAS) to Edendale. They are now operating out of our beautiful heritage Homestead building.

DVAS is a community led Art Society which is more than 50 years old. 

In partnership with Edendale, DVAS now have a new space in which to run workshops, classes and activities of a creative nature.

In 2021 DVAS will be offering Art Classes and activities in the Homestead and in other spaces around the farm. They will also be involved in school holiday programs once they are back in place post covid restrictions. 

Some classes are already in place including Life Drawing most Friday afternoons and Friendship Mixed Media groups in the afternoon and evening.

With increased accessibility to the community, DVAS are hoping to build their membership and offer a wide variety of activities and programs to Edendale visitors and the broader community.

Life Drawing Group - with Lynton 

The Diamond Valley Arts Society life drawing group meets on most Friday afternoons from 12.15 to 3.15 and occasionally on other weekdays. The sessions are untutored and take place in a friendly, relaxing environment within the delightful surrounds of Edendale Farm. The sessions begin with short warm-up poses and progress through to longer ones. We have excellent, professional models. Participants really enjoy the sessions, engaging in their artistic pursuits and joining in the warm social atmosphere. It’s a wonderful way to end the week!

For enquiries contact Lynton on 0425 826 005.

Adult & Teens Painting & Drawing - with Josehpine Armstrong

Come and learn drawing & painting, from basics up. In this course, expect to gain solid foundations in shape and shading and drawing techniques. We will use pencil, pen, charcoal, inks, gouache and oils to draw and paint realistic subjects. If you’re more experienced, you can work more independently at higher levels. We share a light supper mid-class.
