AGM 31 August
The AGM was held on Sunday 31 August with a new Management Committee elected. Congratulations to the incoming Committee and thank you to those who are leaving after two or more years for their hard work.
Details of the new Committee with Alan Jones at the helm are on the Committee Page.
The AGM was followed by a presentation on selling your art from Misty Henkle. This was an excellent and enthusiastic presentation with some very sound philosophies for marketing art. Those unable to attend missed a really excellent presentation and opportunity to further your art sales.

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.
