FESTIV ARTY is coming up fast!

Entries are already open for the art and performing arts competitions in this year’s fabulous Festiv ARTY.

Last year entry numbers broke all records with artwork displayed for the first time in the Collie Art Gallery and Collie PCYC.

This year, organisers expect the event to be bigger than ever entries already rolling in for a range of categories, including painting, mixed media, scrapbooking, photography, woodwork, ceramics, sculpture, mosaics and textiles, with special categories for youth arts, crafts, emerging artists and ‘out of town’ artists.

Entries close August 11 so if you’re arty you better get a move on. Register now!

The workshop line-up includes ‘Making a bee hotel’ at the Collie Community Garden, watercolour and acrylic painting workshops at the Collie Art Gallery.  The Collie Library undercroft will become a creative hub with workshops on creating ‘Dream Catchers’ and making a necklace from a recycled T-shirt.  Artist Andrew Frazer will be holding a Street Art workshop for young people between 13 and 17, also at the library undercroft.

Workshop places are already going fast, so book now!
