Gayle Young, Ann Thornton and Ze show off their creations from the library art workshops
Creatives, now is the time to prepare your work for the “Brushes by the Sea” Art Festival on January 21-22. You can enter the following categories: Acrylic, Oils, Watercolour, Quilting, Craft, Young Artist, Drawing, Photography (real life and landscape), and ‘Local Area’.
The well timed art workshops are on the second and fourth Thursday of the month at 10am at Rainbow Beach Library.
Jenny Tanner will cover various types of art – from sketching with charcoals to painting with watercolours and acrylics – morning tea is provided.
Jenny said, “We have been working in charcoal and have decided to stick to this medium for a while as we are all enjoying it. It came about because people were interested in trying something new.”
“I am amazed at how well everyone is doing, they’re enthusiastic and talented.
We will change to different mediums as we progress.”
So come along to workshops December 8 and 22, it is a perfect lead in for the festival.
Money raised by “Brushes by the Sea” is given to a different local charity each year thanks to the many local businesses that support the event. This year we are hoping the 2017 charity, Rainbow Beach State School P&C, will be just as successful.
Entries must be submitted by January 6 at $5 per entry. Brochures and entry forms are available from the Sports Club or you can download them online.
