New cour­ses at DAB

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THERE is a lot to do, cre­ate and learn at the Dou­glas Arts Base with over 10 new cour­ses start­ing soon.

Lo­cals and vis­i­tors, to at­tend dif­fer­ent cour­ses and learn ev­ery­thing from sculp­ture, art and print-mak­ing to draw­ing botan­i­cal il­lus­tra­tion and bas­ket-mak­ing.

DAB mem­ber of 10 years Carol Edel­berg said all of the teach­ers are highly qual­i­fied in their art and will help de­velop your creative side.

‘‘DAB of­fers a place for lo­cals, tourists, artists and peo­ple want­ing to have a go at be­ing creative,’’ She said.

‘‘ I have been there for 10 years and there are con­stantly chang­ing cour­ses and tu­tors and right now it’s the best time to be in­volved.

‘‘DAB is at its peak, they have the best equip­ment, best tu­tors and such a va­ri­ety on of­fer.’’

And you do not have to be the next Pi­casso to at­tend the cour­ses, which are open to all lev­els of skills and ex­pe­ri­ence.

‘‘Ev­ery­one has a creative side and it is a bril­liant way to ex­press your­self, whether you are good at art or not,’’ Ms Edel­berg said.

‘‘I have seen peo­ple com­ing in who can draw a flat out­line of a duck and two to three years later have cre­ated amaz­ing art framed like you see hang­ing on walls, I love see­ing that.’’
