2015 Summer Art Experience (SAE)
After almost a year of planning and carefully selecting tutors the 2015 SAE has now been launched with great excitement.
Twelve highly skilled and talented tutors will lead students through a week of further developing their skills. Students of all levels will be amazed at the artwork they produce during this week - it is an experience not to be missed.
2015 SAE will be held in the comfort of the Kingsford Smith School at Holt with shops nearby. ASOC has again partnered with Eckersley's to have a well stocked art store on site. The store often has great specials as well. Eckersley's are happy for you to contact them prior to SAE and have your materials ready for you when you arrive.
For further information on this fantastic event, including the brochure and enrolment form Click Here. The difficulty will be in choosing which workshop to attend.
WE HAVE A NEW PORTAL – A REGISTERED “CGDN”
Community Geographical Domain Name – http://www.fyshwick.act.au/
Yes we are the owner/operators of this new domain name and have linked it to our Website. It is the Fyshwick Community Portal and Fyshwick businesses are being asked to join this community portal for a small fee, a proportion of which will be donated to ASOC. As individual Artists you can register your own Website and/or provide a short outline of your work to me for listing. It would be preferable if you did it yourself. Look up ASOC on the portal page to see an example of what you might choose to list. As we advance in ‘community portal use’ there will be opportunities to place “Art” on the site.
