Once again we are excited to release our Kids Art Workshops for the January School Holidays! Our popular kids art classes have been running at full capacity for some time now, so it is great to be able to offer those who haven't been to us before 3 hour workshops and well as the kids attending our art classes a luxurious 3 hours of art time!
This time last year we had no idea that we were about to launch one of the most successful local art exhibitions the Tweed had seen in years! It was a bit surreal. One minute I was chatting to people I knew and the the next minute I couldn't see the paintings through the people! That was our first ever exhibition of student works. Nearly 200 people showed up to share our night.
We have been incredibly lucky to bring artist Anne Smerdon to Artable to teach our kids classes. Anne is a Gold Coast artist represented by galleries in Australia, New York and the UK specialising in watercolour and drawing.
One of the coolest things you can do as an artist is to have a go at working 'en plein-air'. The french term used for painting outdoors. trust the French to bring all things amazing about painting in one neat little package. The feeling of being outdoors in nature, the added benefit of going out with fellow friends or students and the flow of coffee and snacks as you work away the morning or afternoon's light.
