Have a go at art

 Always wanted to try putting some creative marks on paper or canvas but didn’t know how to get started? Artists who tutor at Noosa Arts and Crafts say the time to have a crack is now.

With a plethora of diverse art topics, a quality band of professional artists are offering workshops at Wallace House during the months of September and October. Your opportunity to learn with pastels, paint and pen in a few hours, a day or longer workshops is being facilitated by renowned artists such as Trevor Purvis, Carolyn Sheather, Lizzie Connor and Maxine Thompson.

In addition to her weekly Friday morning ‘Pure Pastels’ workshop, Carolyn Sheather is conducting a 2 hour ‘Long Morning Tea’ workshop on Saturday 12 October from 10am. Designed for sketchers to get started or continue exploring, if you only have a few hours then enjoy this morning tea with the bonus of learning how to sketch the ‘pretties’.

As primarily coastal dwellers we Noosarians love our beaches and sea. From Tuesday 24 September for four consecutive weeks, 9am-12noon, renowned Sunshine Coast artist Lizzie Connor will facilitate a Marine Art workshop teaching how to create images of the beach and dune environments as well as the sea.

For those who long to learn how to do a portrait of their loved ones, NZ based artist Maxine Thompson is on her annual visit to Noosa and is facilitating her Pastel Portraits workshop on the weekend of 14 and 15 September; followed by her Pastel Play workshop on the Monday and Tuesday.

And the master of contemporary and abstract landscape art, Trevor Purvis, will be facilitating one of his awesome workshops in October too.

All workshops are being held at the historic Wallace House, 1 Wallace Drive, Noosaville adjacent to the Noosaville Library. For more details or to book your workshop: phone 5474 1211 or email create@noosaartsandcrafts.org.au or book online https://noosaartsandcrafts.org.au.
