A new artist-run studio, just a short stroll from downtown Burleigh, has launched a comprehensive series of art workshops to get the city’s creatives through winter.
Mint Art House, located on West Burleigh Road is home to eight local artists including ceramicists, painters and sculptors. It is both a collaborative studio as well as an event space that aims to open art up to the public. Mint this week announced its workshop series, which will be facilitated by its resident artists.
One of those artists, Cara Sanders, describes the idea behind the workshops.
“These workshops are really about de-mystifying the process behind creating art, and proving to people that anyone can be creative,” says Cara Sanders, resident Mint Artist.
“It’s not often that you have a space like Mint that encourages so much collaboration between artists and the public, and in such a prime position,” says Andrew Cullen, also a resident artist and previous SWELL Sculpture Festival exhibitor.
The first workshop takes place 27 June, focussed on watercolour and hosted by Nat Pop. Subsequent sessions will explore wire sculptures with Andrew Cullen, ceramics, smouldering, acrylics and an introduction to intuitive expression. Workshops range in price from $45 to $140.
