Have A Go At... Painting a Landscape
You don't need to leave town to see beautiful scenery these school holidays - you can paint it!
On January 18 2022, children aged 8-13 are invited to join us at the Feilding Art Centre to have a go at painting landscapes. Guided by experienced teacher and accomplished artist, Eris Newson, each student will learn the techniques required to produce a painting that transports them to another place.
Students will need to bring a photo of the scene they'd like to paint.
All other materials, plus morning tea, are included in the ticket price.
