Do I need to take any art materials?
All art materials are included in the price! Even aprons.
What is the schedule?
In the mornings we will be learning plein air sketching and painting.
The afternoons are free time, and if you want you can join us in fun activities such as visiting the temples, rice paddy terraces, local markets and watching traditional Balinese customs and dance. Some of these extra activities may involve additional costs.
Are the villas air conditioned?
What clothing do I need to bring?
The weather is very warm and sometimes humid in Bali in March, so bring very lightweight clothing to suit very warm days. Casual comfortable cool clothing is the go.Comfy walking shoes are a must. We will have optional tours to some amazing special spots in Bali that involve a bit of walking.
It is always wise to also take a cardie and long pants (like lightweight leggings) just in case. You may not ever wear them!
How do we dress up for dinner at the villa and restaurants?
Dress VERY relaxed and cool. It’s very casual. We’re offering a dinner at a nice restaurant on the last night as an option, where you could dress up a bit more, but still comfortably cool.
How much are the evening meals?
Most evening meals at the villas are around $10 – $20. On one night we are going out to a lovely restaurant that’s a bit special that charges more, like Brisbane restaurants. And they have lovely cocktails that are worth a try!
Do I need a Visa?
Nope. Bali and Australia have an agreement that no Visa is needed. But your passport needs to have at least 6 months left on it and be undamaged.
What is the currency in Bali?
How much local currency should I bring?
You can use credit cards nearly everywhere you go except local markets, although card skimming can happen so you should always go into a bank to convert, or convert Australian $ notes into rupes with a trusted local (like the villa management). The villa management can also direct you to safe currency conversion places. Australian $ are also widely accepted, but don’t depend on it.
For how much you spend, it’s only when you’re out and about at market stalls or little local shops that you need cash. The villa takes cards for all your meals or extras
What vaccines will I need to go to Bali?
The best thing to do is check with your GP!
The important vaccines to be up-to-date with are the standard Tetanus and Hepatitis A, but we recommend talking to your GP about vaccines for Ubud, which is an inland Balinese town.
