Kudu Bush Lodge hosts an art studio run by the artist JJ Clark. If you are an artist or an aspiring artist or merely looking for an opportunity for creative expression, you are welcome to join him in his studio and have a creative time. His aim is to create art in nature that is inspired by nature. Organic shapes, textures, colours and patterns found in nature as well as the effect that light, shadow and reflection give, excite and inspire him, and through his art he tries to capture the essence of these elements.
