Canowindra Arts Inc is offering local school students, who show creative promise in art, an opportunity to be mentored and de- veloped by professional artists within the group’s fold.
The program is made possible by a funding grant that’s making an initial six places available for emerging young artists in 2017.
Canowindra Arts Chair Arthur Falconer said, “We’re inviting Canowindra High School and local residents to apply on behalf of youngsters aged between 12 and 16 who are demonstrating early talent, skills and en- thusiasm or passion for painting and would benefit from the guidance and nurturing of established adult professionals.
he students chosen for the program will be offered a series of workshops, conducted by Canowindra Arts members, providing talks on the history, philosophy and celebrat- ed diversity of the art of painting, along with instruction on the various tools and mediums that artists use.
Each workshop would include a practical session in which the students would paint their own works, and they would be encouraged to show and discuss work that they may have completed at home or at school.
“The spirit of the tuition will be friendly, informal and nurturing, with obviously a lot of opportunity for one-on-one attention to the children,” says Arthur.
“The six students will be invited to join in the activities of the Canowindra Arts group and display their artworks in our annual program of exhibitions in Canowindra.”
