AT PRESENT the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery boasts a collection of two Margaret Olley paintings, and works from William Robinson, James Guppy and many more skilled and talented artists.

This is a must-see and will run until January 7.

"Today at 10am we have a writers' workshop with Annie Mitchell. Annie is passionate about writing. She is a writer and teacher and is ardent about telling stories,” gallery director Mary Findlay said.

"Annie will get you started with story writing with shared circle stories, activities to engaging the senses to build characters and settings - a textural journey to uncover and discover quirks and insights into a character, making the real, or unreal. Editing and making every word count. This is Flash Fiction 101 - the basics.

"On Tuesday, December 19, we have Creative Indigenous Decorations with Tully de Vries.

"Tully cleverly integrates indigenous art with the festive season to create colourful and unique decorations.

"Australian indigenous art is the oldest ongoing tradition of art in the world.

"Initial forms of artistic Aboriginal expression were rock carvings, body painting and ground designs, which date back more than 50,000 years.

"On Thursday, December 21, we will be decorating clay discs for Christmas, thanks to the Stanthorpe Pottery Club.

"This workshop places emphasis on the discovery and joy of creating, however, there is an excitement for children as they make their own design which is unique to them.

"They can hang their decoration for many years as parents and grandparents enjoy their art,” Mary said.”

Class schedule

All classes are free and begin at 10am and finish around 11.30am. Please ring the gallery for bookings (07)46811874 or email
