  1. Our group cannot speak highly enough about some recent tutoring received.  The tutor, Suzi Hancock, has vast experience in many media, (we were tutored in sketching with charcoal) and Suzi is a multi-award winning professional artist. We have to say that Suzi goes above and beyond her responsibility as a tutor.   Should you wish to contact Suzi her phone number is 0409 025027.

  4. Received a visit from Mackay Regional  Council’s Art Development Officers, Tracey and Jahn. They were an absolute fountain of knowledge and were extremely helpful to us all.  We have received valuable information and direction beyond our expectation, and we are very appreciative.  We have requested that they might be in a position to visit our community perhaps every quarter, and we are very hopeful that this can occur. Thank you for your valued visit Tracey and Jahn.
