What the Art Session Covers
The Thursday Prints & Works on paper art session is a tutored art session. It is held every 2nd & 4th Thursday of each month.
Carol Mitchell is the convenor.
The art session covers printing at any level, linocut, dry point etching, Collagraphs, mono prints, eco dyeing, paper makings, and preparation for Works on paper, pastel, watercolour, conte, graphite and charcoal.
This group has a facebook group – PRINT AND PAPER @ THE BAY . If you are interested in printing as an art form then this group is well worth joining and following.
Any adult (18 years or over) member of the public or member of the art society can attend this art session.
This art session runs from 12 noon to 3pm every 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month (apart from year end break and occasional closures (e.g. building maintenance) – see our weekly program or homepage for details of closures).
This art session is held in the workshop area of the Gallery 5 building located at 5 Sandy St, Urangan Qld.
The cost of this art session 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 art session.
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.
First Time Attending
It can be a bit daunting showing up cold to an art session – especially if you are interested in painting but haven’t done much. An easy way is to show up one Thursday morning (sans equipment) and check out the facilities for yourself. Have a look around the gallery and art session and have a talk to the tutors or reception 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 art sessions and hopefully join as a member.
