Time is running out for South Burnett artists to book in for a digital workshop in Kingaroy which will lead to their artworks being projected on to the peanut silos in Haly Street.
The Central Queensland Regional Arts Services Network (CQRASN), in conjunction with the South Burnett Regional Council, South Burnett Arts Inc and Bega Cheese, is offering the exciting professional development opportunity for artists living in the CQRASN catchment area.
The two-day Animation and Projection Workshop will be held on August 3-4 at the South Burnett Enterprise Centre in Cornish Street.
However, expressions of interest to take part close at 5:00pm on Monday (July 1).
The workshop will be led by Donna Maree Robinson, an award-winning multimedia artist who is based in Mackay.

They will also learn how to plan and project these artworks outdoors.

It will include an opportunity for the animated artwork to be projected on the Bega / PCA silos on the evening of August 4.
