Maleny Youth Art Awards

The 14th annual Maleny Youth Art Awards were held last weekend at the Maleny High School. Close to 400 entries came from Primary, Junior, Senior and Graduate students living in the Hinterlands from Beerwah to Mapleton.
This year's event was sponsored by the Maleny Apex and coordinated by 'yours truly' with the help of several COMA volunteers. Art collector and patron of the awards, Ken Hinds, handed out the prizes at the opening ceremony on Saturday.
Congratulations to the 37 winners - a fantastic effort.

Rusty Offerings

Maleny Artworks presents …


Carol Wilkes tutor


Wrapping, twisting, folding, layering and whatever we explore is used to create wonderful organic parcels containing rusty and not so rusty bits.
The final unwrapping reveals the most spontaneous organic imagery upon the surface of both cloth and paper.
Many other alternative methods and interpretations will be discussed for the student to have the confidence and knowledge to pursue on their own after the course.
These “art marks” on cloth and paper are able to be incorporated into many varied forms of art.
This process does not require the use of any toxic chemicals.

Dates … Saturday 20 September and Saturday 04 October
Time …. 10am to 2pm each day
Venue … Maleny Artworks Studio – 50 Maple Street
Fee……. $85.00 for the full course
