How about a weekend being creative in the light filled studios at Brisbane Institute of Art? T-shirt fundamentals, monoprinting, botanical art, fibre and woven sculpture, silversmithing, introductory drawing and iPhoneography are just a few of over fifty weekend workshops being held at BIA. More than 40 artists provide a rich program of exhibitions, art classes and workshops in the friendly and supportive creative environment at the institute. A structured art program is available that offers students the freedom to explore their own interests. The offerings range from figure drawing and still-life painting, to sculptural assemblage and digital photography. The visual arts provide an excellent hands on starting point for life-long learning with broad linkages to areas such as design, history, psychology and philosophy. Classes and workshops are offered during the day, evening and on weekends. Everyone is welcome.
