Part of the Southern Highlands Arts Festival is the Art Studio Trail
2nd & 3rd November and the 9th & 10th of November 2013
Once again the feature event of SHAF is the annual Southern Highlands Art Studio Trail, when artists open their studio doors and allow visitors inside to explore their creative habitats across the first two weekends of November, 2013.
This year 22 studio doors are opening for the Art Studio Trail, so visitors will be able to meet the artists, see their work in the place it was created and purchase directly from the studio door.
A few examples from the day;

Clovelly Road Better Block
27th October 2013, Between Arden and Beach Streets
The local community is making Clovelly Road better for a day. We’re adding trees, plants, tables, chairs, art, music, slowing car speeds, and creating better, safer conditions for everyone – including kids, seniors, and people walking and cycling.
The aim is to bring the community together, to encourage everyone to re-imagine the streets, and build momentum for permanent improvements.
A great day and it’s a great initiative.
