Following in the footsteps of one of the Victorian Artists Society's most famous artists, Arthur Streeton, who painted at Halls Gap in 1920, thirty artists from the VAS Paint Out Group headed to the Grampians for a weekend of painting, sketching and exploring.
On Friday the VAS Paint Out group painted in the hilly rocky areas of the Grampians. Saturday the Paint Out Group travelled to Mooralla to VAS Member, Jocelyn Turner's farm.
