Yarrahapinni Art Group operational

Leonie Grant was delighted with messy creativity.

IT all began with a basic inquiry on local social media pages and now a collection of enthusiastic individuals from the Stuarts Point and Yarrahapinni district have agreed to gather for casual sessions of visual art creativity.

It started with two sessions last week, one on Wednesday afternoon 26 July, and another on Thursday evening 27 July.

Initial instigator, Robyn Peterie, is pleased with the strong response.

“I’ve been looking for a group to get together and do art with, as it’s a great way to meet people, get motivated to create, and to learn new skills,” she said.

With an appropriate space (a disused production shed) and equipment at hand, Robyn realised it wouldn’t matter much about the resulting mess, so participants can paint or draw, use charcoal or ink, whatever medium anyone likes to explore.

“I know it’s expensive to get live models, so my concept is to do different themes,” said Robyn.

“One week a still life, another an outdoor scene, another we can take turns being a model for quick poses, another a retake on an old artwork or style, and maybe a life model once a month or 6 weeks, when we can afford it,” said Robyn.

As spring season approaches field trips to local beaches, waterways and forest trails are envisaged.
