What the Social Painting Group Does
The Monday Weekly Workshop is a social painting group covering 2D art (painting and drawing).
Judy Lamont is the convenor. Other attendees step in as the convenor when she is not available. The convenor is responsible for collecting the money and opening and closing the building but is not there as a tutor.
Tables, chairs and full size easels are provided but all other equipment needs to be supplied by the artist. Artists work on their own projects but are free to socialise and discuss art with other artists as they wish. The convenor of the social painting group is not there as a tutor. If you want a workshop that has a designated tutor please consider attending other sessions.
Any adult (18 years or over) member of the public or member of the art society can attend this workshop.
This workshop is held in the workshop area of the Gallery 5 building located at 5 Sandy St, Urangan Qld.
The cost of workshop is $7 for art society members and $10 for non-members.
No pre-booking is required – simply show up with your art equipment and fee and you can join in the workshop.
There is normally morning tea taken mid morning. Coffee, tea, milk, sugar, biscuits and crockery is provided and covered by the cost of the workshop.
The Hervey Bay Art Society’s Gallery 5 is operating under a covid-safe plan at the moment. Details are provided on entering Gallery 5. If there are any questions then please contact us. Do not attend Gallery 5 if you are showing any symptoms that could be related to covid or if you have any reason to believe you may have been exposed to covid.
First Time Attending
It can be a bit daunting showing up cold to an art workshop – especially if you are interested in painting but haven’t done much. An easy way is to show up one Wednesday morning (sans equipment) and check out the facilities for yourself. Have a look around the gallery and workshop and have a talk to the convenor and other attendees and see what is involved and if it is for you.
If you are interested in art and have time to pursue it – don’t put it off – come and join in – attend the workshops and hopefully join as a member.
