A full range of art courses and creative workshops are run throughout the year from the loft art studio. Art courses and programs incorporate a diverse range of art mediums and offer new areas of dynamic art practice for all levels and ages.

The studio can cater for up to ten workshop participants and is a safe, inspiring environment for participants to enjoy taking part in creative expression. Not to mention the sound of waves laps lapping at the nearby shore, the views out to the ocean and the rustle of the palms that surround the loft studio…perfect.

Art Courses

Four weekly sessions over one month, ranging between 12-15 hrs contact time. All course materials, tuition and studio fees are included in course costs. All participants have constant instruction and guidance and it’s all just about having fun.

Art Retreats 


CRW_2400 IMGP1446 IMGP2969

The Big Barge Art Centre is opening up opportunities in 2014 for you to book your own group into an personalised art retreat. We are offering artists from novice to professional the opportunity to engage creatively in these beautiful and remote islands. Our art retreats encompass a range of exciting and unique art experiences and workshops. Inspiration and the collection of materials for art sessions stem from inclusive island explorations and discovery tours around the pristine waters and shores of the atoll. Come and recharge your spirit and inspire your work in a truly captivating tropical paradise.

Proposed retreats will look to include the following:

  • All island tours and day trips
  • All art workshops (tuition/studio fees/materials)
  • Shared Transport
  • Two evening meals/ packed picnic lunches

Time will be put aside for relaxing and individual activities. Retreat guests will have full use of the art studio for that time if desired and any extra recreational activities can be catered for individually.

Please contact us to register your interest or for more information.
