29 October: Free Art School returns to Benalla Art Gallery  Printer Friendly

The Benalla Art Gallery is about to be transformed again into a free art school from 31 October to 13 December, offering classes and workshops in painting, drawing, watercolour, printmaking, ceramics, jewellery making, plant inspired collage, mosaics and some surprises like tie dye clothing.

The program is being repeated after 5,292 people attended the Free Art School last year, engaging in activities in and around the Gallery.

The Free Art School includes interactive installations, a social space, library and projects with guest artists. All sessions are free for Gallery members, with a small materials charge for some sessions for non-members.

"We believe that everyone has artistic potential,” said Bryony Nainby, Benalla Art Gallery Director.

“The Free Art School, which is based on the concept of social sculpture, is a way for the Gallery to engage with the public and put artistic expression within everyone's reach, across a range of disciplines,” Ms Nainby said.

“The sessions are designed to help people unlock the artist within, with no prior experience necessary. When people participate, it expands their understanding of the artistic process, and it increases their confidence to express themselves creatively.

"We know that participating in activities such as these has benefits for the whole community, and this is an accessible way for people to join in.”

Highlights of the Free Art School will include:
 
 A 1970’s painting picnic to celebrate the Gallery’s fortieth anniversary – 31 October
 Outdoor landscape painting on Lake Benalla – 7 November
 Beginners Portrait Painting – 18 November
 Tie-dye clothing – 21 November
