Collie kids stick it to the fence

The fence at Collie Early Education, across the railway line from the Collie Art Gallery, has received a temporary facelift thanks to 30 young artists who took part in the gallery’s first-ever workshops.

The three-day workshop involved learning the basics of photography and the non-destructive street art technique known as “paste-ups”.

The following days involved the design, construction and collage of a temporary large-scale work on the fence at the early education centre.

TheThe event was supported by the Department of Local Government and Communities as part of National Youth Week.

The gallery’s weekly term-time classes for children, teens and adults begin Thursday, 30 April 2015.

Local artist Richard Fry lead weekly sessions aimed at unlocking your creativity and developing your skills, whatever level you are at.

All exercises are introductory processes that can last a few days, or they could keep you busy for the rest of your life.

Classes are a place to get to know other creative people and develop your skills, a beginning point to help you work out what the next steps could be.
