Open Studios 2015 – Join us for a weekend drive!
We have a new program which creates greater opportunity for you to visit our artists in their studios!
From July 2015, our artists will have a selection of studios open during the last weekend of every month, so come on up to the beautiful Sunshine Coast and Hinterland for a weekend drive!
There is plenty of accommodation for you to make an inspiring weekend of it!
Watch the artists at work, buy a piece or a painting, and chat with them about how they created it.
Some of our artists offer workshops where you can create, discover and free your soul as you unleash your own inner artist.
These workshops cover a wide range of materials and techniques, including: clay sculpture; mixed media, watercolour & acrylic painting; landscapes; life drawing; jewellery making; fabric dying and printmaking.
Please see our workshops page for further details. The artists will have their upcoming workshops listed on their artists pages! This is a new initiative too!
Explore the Studios
Once again and more often, the doors of artists’ studios will be thrown ajar on the last weekend of every month!
Sunshine Coast Hinterland artists invite you to their special places of work, where paints, canvas, paper, inks, brushes, tools and clays will all be in use in creating art forms. You can contact the individual artists for studio appointments, to visit, bring your group or book a workshop for your group.
This project would not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Thank you.
