I’m pleased to say that we’ve had a great opportunity for public exposure with a new display of the Werri Beach art ’15 exhibition and short film. Thanks very much to Kiama Library for hosting the work for 3 weeks! Now lots of people will get the chance to see what our talented young people can do. Thanks also to the Friends of the Kiama Library for putting on a launch event and listening to Tim and I speak about the workshops.
You can take a look at the video that we have put together to capture a feeling of our 3 days of Beach art adventures, over at Vimeo. We hope you enjoy it, it’s only 6 minutes or so long. https://vimeo.com/133317259
We would love to share the amazing work, made by our Beach art students these holidays, with the community.
Please come to the public exhibition and show your support for our young artists:
Werri Beach Art 2015
the Werri Room, Gerringong Bowling Club,
Pacific Street, Gerringong
Sunday 12th July, 1pm – 5pm
and view a display of images and a film taken while the students worked on the beach making temporary art pieces over three days.
This is the blog and website of the upcoming Beach Art Workshops that will take place on Werri Beach over 5 days in June/July 2015. There is also the option to join us for 3 days, show your preference on the registration form, thanks!
These workshops will be a chance for talented young artists, from the Kiama area, to work outside engaging with the beach and creating ephemeral (temporary) pieces to express their thoughts, feelings and connections with the beach, landscape and the natural world. This won’t be a formal art lesson where we teach you how to draw etc but a chance for you to show us what you can do with the canvas of the beach, guided by us and shown fantastic, inspiring examples of how other artists have explored this way of making art.
All of the works will be recorded in video and still photography (by the participants) and presented at an exhibition at the end so your friends and family can see what you have created. Read on over at the WORKSHOPS page if you are interested in taking part. If you are ready to register for this exciting opportunity, please fill out this registration form. Consent from parent/carer will be required! These workshops have been made possible by a grant from the Kiama Cultural Arts Grants.
