Sydney Art Holidays

Sydney Art Holidays offers a truly unique stay in Sydney

We will be spending the week at the historic and grand St Patrick's College  which operated as a Catholic training seminary from 1889 to to 1995.  The college is now the home of the  International School of Management, Sydney.  operating as an educational campus and providing classroom, accommodation and event venues.
The building is as famous as Manly itself with it's vast halls, stained glass windows and unique sandstone bricks.  It sits above Manly with sweeping ocean vistas, vast green grounds and lush bush surroundings.  
There is a cafe on site where will have morning breakfast and teas - with most dinners being provided off-campus at one of the many restaurants in the town.  There is also a tennis court  (booking essential) we are able to use and our classroom has a verandah running along side it, where we can take a break from painting and look out over the spectacular views.
The course is held in an educational facility so each course participant will have their own campus-style room.  Rooms come with a single bed, desk and cupboard. The rooms are simple, fresh and bright - most having a water view.  There are share bathroom facilities with the number of students sharing kept to a minimum.  The venue provides accommodation and bathroom share for female guests on a seperate level to male guests.
