Creative Arts Practice Masterclass Weekend

27-28 March 2021
The Laurels of Chinchilla 

Seeking to enhance your arts practice?   

This masterclass is designed to guide you in the process of ‘applied thinking’ strategies for developing ideas and concepts that are the foundation of arts practice. The workshop includes creative investigations, self-reflection, readings, research, and informal group conversations. The outcomes for each artist will include developing starting points for creative explorations, ideas for new projects, time out to think, and to nurture a stronger connection between self and arts practice.   

The masterclass will suit artists who have some experience in exhibiting their work and would like to extend themselves further professionally. You will need to be self-motivated for personal success and open to new ways of thinking. Some additional exercises are required prior to the workshop to bring along so you can get the most out of your time during the workshop. 

Spaces are limited! Book early to avoid disappointment (Via Eventbrite) click here
