I have just returned from a trip to Alice and Yuendemu. I spent several days working as a volunteer at Warlukurlangu Arts in Yuendemu. The trip from Alice was the start of the adventure with a flat tyre along the way. It has been a long time since I changed a tyre but between the three of us in the car we managed!

What a privilege to be able to watch such high profile artists like Dorothy Napangardi and Judy Watson Napangardi painting. Every day as I watched up to 18 artists paint, I saw the magic of colours and textures becoming beautiful paintings.

Every day there were different jobs to do such as priming the canvases ready for the artists to use. 

Every day there was tea, cereal, porridge and toasties to make for the artists breakfast and lunch. Never a dull moment! Great fun! I'm going back next year again - for longer!
