Joining us from Bali will be
I Wayan Karja
who was born a painter in a family of artists, his first memory is of sitting on his
fathers's lap with a brush in his hand. Karja learned about colours as a young child from his family
and from the "Young Artist" painters of Penestanan including Arie Smit,
the master of colour. He became the Dean of Fine Arts in Denpansaur University in 2004 before working full time as an artist.
He will offer both an "Introduction to Balinese Art and Culture" evening and a special Painting class.
Because both he and his family are nearby we can see how the Balinese life style is and there
may be chances to take part in ceremonies in the village Temple nearby.
Also field trip to the studio of Made Sidia. Presentation by students of I Made Sidia.
He is one of the most well
travelled, knowledgable Masters in the Balinese art of Dance, Music (Gamelan teacher) and Shadow Theatre.
