How the Arts Are Connecting Women on the Central Coast and Beyond with Free and Fun Workshops
An innovative series of free art and craft as well as theatre skill workshops for women of all skill levels from timid beginners to those with more experience is here for you to take part in. Art-Full Women celebrates and encourages all Central coast women 55 years and over to come along and join the conversation. Classes have now commenced and the feedback from all participants has been overwhelmingly positive.
Women from across the Central coast have so far been able to participate in Mixed media, Life drawing and pottery workshops run by practicing artists over the past 2 months. The results have been as interesting as the women who have joined a class and created their individual and unique works . We have seen some really terrific outcomes. From quirky pottery pieces to fascinating mixed media self portraits.
Brenda Logan, Creative Producer designed the program and put it all together and with her successful grant application for funding couldn’t be happier with the response from the local community.
Upcoming sessions will include weaving, doll making and ceramics with an evolving program of art and craft workshops to be offered before moving on to a series of theatre skill workshops. The Art Full women program offers a safe and stimulating environment for older women who would like to participate in a community of women who are curious about discovering and sharing their creative selves while meeting new people and learning new skills..
There is a lot more to come before moving on the second exciting theatre and drama phase of the program. Take a journey into a theatre production which draws on individual and collective experiences and issues faced by women both locally and in the broader community. Let us tell our stories and share insights. Brenda Logan will lead you in fun role play and you can be yourself to help create stories relevant to all women of today and especially older women living right here on the Central Coast.
The program is FREE fun and fulfilling. We would love to hear from any women who would just like some time to develop their own interests and explore their hidden artistic experimental side as well as those who may like to run a workshop.
