YOUR Pages - Your Art Ideas, Painting Tips - Share with the Art Community?

YOUR art ideas pages give you the opportunity to publicise your art event, to offer helpful advice and comments - and to show off your own art work!

YOUR art ideas pages are where you may contribute ideas, images of your own art work, perhaps details of an advanced technique that you have mastered - or even a funny art-related story.

This is the place to list your up-coming events, such as exhibitions, artists retreats, studio-open days, writing workshops, art classes, dance or music events and workshops, theatrical performances ...even to philosophise about the meaning of art in tropical Australia or elsewhere and to comment on what others have said.

The fine arts forum page is a forum where you may initiate discussions and let us all know your opinion about art related matters.

Children's art is often wonderful, showing insights sometimes forgotten by adults, so there is a page for them, too.

YOUR art ideas pages work in conjunction with the e-newsletter "Perspectives". Please check back issues here and enter your email details on the left of this page if you would like to receive it.

If you have news or art related information of interest to everyone that doesn't seem to fit the categories below, please let me know via the contact form.

This web-page, is the place to find "what's on" in FNQ. So send your friends and please come back often!

Please also see art workshops and classes as well as jobs or residencies for artists, such as this one in France.

YOUR art ideas pages are not exclusively for the use of North Queensland artists. If you live in another country we would LOVE to see your artwork or hear your opinions, read your poetry (it had better be in English!) or gain from technical tips that you might like to share.

Please note that email addresses are shown with AT replacing the @ symbol in an attempt to foil spammers!

Thank you so much for your contribution to this site. Please make your story, article or information at least  400+ words long as it will have a whole page to itself.
