Joint team work makes art class

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE | COMMUNITY -

BENDIGO Bank has again spon­sored art classes held ev­ery Wed­nes­day this term at the gallery.

This con­tri­bu­tion has en­abled a wide range of young peo­ple to be cre­ative and en­joy the won­der­ful artis­tic aes­thet­ics of the gallery.

Lau­rie Astill and Dean Ford were the two res­i­dent artists who ran the classes.

Their sense of fun and love of art cre­ated an at­mos­phere where all stu­dents were shar­ing and cre­at­ing art.

The group was sup­ported by Boomerang Bags who made the bod­ies for the pa­pier-mache pup­pets and the Stan­thorpe Pot­tery Club who ran the clay class.

The part­ner­ship be­tween the Bendigo Bank, artists, Boomerang Bags and the Stan­thorpe Pot­tery Club, the gallery and the stu­dents has been a cat­a­lyst for help­ing young peo­ple ex­press them­selves in their own unique way.
