Programs and workshops

The creative process and participation in art by all members of our community, young and old, is just as important as its display and sale.

We offer a diverse range of programs suitable for artists at all levels, from primary-school-aged children right through to seniors, absolute beginners to experienced artists and everybody in between.

Workshops and development programs will touch on a cross-section of techniques, mediums and interests throughout the yearly program.

Suitably experienced artists are invited to express an interest in running a program or workshop at the gallery. Click here or contact admin@collieartgallery.org.au for more information.
