The 2020 Sunflower Art and Craft Festival will be held at the Royal Theatre Quirindi on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 November. To get locals excited about and involved in this year's festival Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) is collaborating with E.Rose Art to hold a two hour adults art workshop at the Royal Theatre’s greenroom, entry via Q Mural door, from 6pm on Friday 16 October.
“During this workshop participants will learn how to draw sunflowers using visuals to support their understanding. Participants will then learn colour theory to support their ability to use acrylics to colour their sunflowers. Participants will use this knowledge to create their own canvases that they will be encouraged to enter in the Sunflower Art Festival,” said LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“The cost of the workshop is $40 and includes materials and a canvas to each participant. To book go to https://ticketing.oz.veezi.com/purchase/253?siteToken=d83r4gh8g3h84pttrtb3yg79mc. Spaces are limited so book your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. No walk-ins can be accepted on the night. COVID- 19 safety will be enforced so please adhere to COVID-Safe protocols while attending,” he said.
“Arts, culture, and heritage are increasingly viewed not only as amenities to improve the quality of life, but as one of the foundations upon which the future of rural and small communities rests,” he concluded.
