Introducing new Thursday night events to get artist together in informal ways and having an opportunity to be creative.
The DVAA committee is looking for a name for this event... Thirsty Thursday, Culture Club or Art-a-noon, what do you think?
But to begin with on May 12...
Don’t Drink and Drive, Drink and Draw!
Bring you paper, sketch books, pencils and paints and come to DVAA and meet other artist, get creative and have a drink.

Saturday May 14-15

Due to popular demand we are hosting another printing workshop at BHE.
Cost: $165 for members for 2 full days.

Saturday 28
Mel Macklin’s Guide to Children’s Illustration #101
Ever thought: “When I grow up, I’d like to be a children’s book illustrator”? Then this workshop is for you! After a look at some of the world’s best, we’ll be creating characters, animating them, and developing storyboards of our very own. Participants will go home with at least one finished full-colour frame from their storyboard, and lots of ideas besides. Some drawing skills would be helpful in getting the most out of this workshop, but enthusiasm can work just as well.
Basic materials will be provided but participants are welcome to bring along their own, and/or any specialist equipment. Morning tea will also be provided.
Cost: $50 (this includes morning tea and basic art materials).

May is time to renew your membership.
