Star Nation Art Studio & Gallery

A visit to the studio is a must do while in Heidelberg

A visit to the studio is a must do while in Heidelberg, where you’ll find artist Louise Kluyts in the back of the historic house behind a canvas painting away at a new piece. The studio has an art gallery exhibiting the work of resident artists Andries and Louise Kluyts as well as local artists and students from the studio. They work together with local artists to create an art experience for visitors and locals alike as work towards creating a legacy for our Heidelberg and its children.

Andries has a very informative black smith workshop running over 3 days in which time visitors actually forge a piece of functional art of their choosing. Louise holds a variety of art classes, from fine art to therapy art as well as a variety of crafts. Workshops include drawing, painting with acrylics, oil and mixed media. Ceramic artist Kallien Louw holds ceramic workshops and Ann van der Walt teaches watercolour art. They even have Hester doing a Bonsai workshop. Once a year during the winter school holiday they do a Winter Program which comprised of workshops in a lot of different arts.

Gallery open and closing times:  Monday to Friday from 09:30 – 17:30
Saturdays from 09:30 – 13:30
