Award Winning Artist to present Coast Workshop

by Peggy Howe

There is a wonderful opportunity for all local artists to participate in two two- day art workshops, June 17 – 20 at the Sports Club. Please book early to avoid disappointment – places are limited.

 Peggy Howe has obtained a RADF grant to organize a Cooloola Coast workshop for all local artists. The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government and Gympie Regional Council partnership to support local arts and culture.

There will be a dinner and a display of all artwork on the Friday evening to add a social touch to an enjoyable week.

The visiting Sunshine Coast Artist is Aileen Shaw. She has won many prizes throughout Australia and her paintings hang in many homes and corporations. She was the proud owner of her own art gallery and teaching studio at Glenview and now runs many workshops throughout Queensland.

Aileen lived in Rainbow Beach for many years and some of us will remember her lively and enthusiastic classes that she ran for six years.

There is a $10 registration fee plus your art requirements (the Sports Club have the list) – call Peggy for details and registration 5486 8064.
