AUTUMN ART SCHOOL
An annual event that has been hosted in Hanmer Springs for many years. This same event now has a new twist. The Amuri Community Arts Council have passed the baton over to the Music and Arts Hanmer Springs Trust.
Our aim is to offer exciting workshops in a range of music and arts subjects. A continuation of the amazing event that already has an established history.
These workshops will all be held in Hanmer Springs. We are working towards offering these in the Soldiers Block in the hospital grounds. A combination of local and national tutors will lead participants in a learning experience second to none.
Join us in gorgeous Hanmer Springs for a 2 day break away from your usual routine. Immerse yourself in a group environment focused on extending your skills in an inclusive and friendly way.
There will be a social gathering and official opening on the evening before workshops start. Tutors work will be on display at this event. An opportunity to meet and greet all those involved – Tutors, participants, organisers.
At the end of the workshops a gathering to share learning and give feedback will be held.
Choose your workshop, gather a group of friends, book your accommodation and start an annual pilgrimage to join us at this event…Find out more »
