Artists invited to SCA event

VISUAL arts students or artists from across the Coffs Coast are being offered a first-time opportunity to meet with staff from the Sydney College of the Arts in a series of free workshops.

“This is the first time that Sydney College of the Arts (SCA) has offered students and artists from this area of NSW this opportunity,” said Dr Leigh Summers, director/curator of the Coffs Harbour Regional Art Gallery, which is hosting the event.

“Anyone interested in any type of visual art, particularly students who are attending TAFE or high school in Years 9 to 12, are very welcome to attend the free workshops that SCA is holding.

“This is a wonderful chance for artists of any age to learn how to develop their own talents, styles and bodies of work from experts in the field of art education.”

Sydney College of the Arts is the Visual Art Faculty of the University of Sydney. It provides innovative programs that help provide students with the conceptual and technical skills to establish a career as a contemporary visual artist.

“SCA has a prestigious history of educating many of Australia's most successful contemporary visual artists, helping them to realise their aspirations and develop their communications, intellectual and cultural skills,” said Dr Summers.

The two free workshops are being held on Friday, August 13, at 9.30am to noon and 12.30pm to 3pm.

They are open to any visual arts student attending TAFE or high school in Years 9 to 12 or local artists in the Mid North Coast region.

Anyone interested is asked to contact the University on 9351 1016 or sca.marketing@sydney.edu.au
