Holiday creative art

4 October 2019

THREE days of colour and creativity saw more than 50 young locals create everything from vibrant landscapes to tie-dyed wearable art during a series of free school holiday art classes.

Inverell based artist and teacher, Nadia Kliendanze led the art classes, with participants ranging in age from 5 – 16 years.

Participants were able to choose from a trio of options; painting abstract landscapes, screen printing and creating their own tie-dyed t-shirt.

The workshops were jointly hosted by Inverell Art Gallery and Inverell Shire Council under Council’s year-long youth event calendar.

Council mayor, Paul Harmon says the success of the workshops and the immense interest among parents means Council and the art gallery will be working on future opportunities for creative kids’ classes.

“Council approached the gallery about hosting some school holiday programs and they were lucky enough to secure Nadia who developed a line up of nine classes over a 3-day period”, Cr Harmon explained.

“Jo and the team at the gallery do a tremendous job and Nadia has arranged a terrific calendar to ensure kids were able to try their hand at a range of different arts”.

“Not only are these classes about having fun and trying something new, but also show young people how creating art can be a great way to express themselves”.

Further information on Council’s youth events and future arts opportunities can be found at their website and Facebook page.
