Our vision: a unique creative space for art in a busy world
75 ART CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS DELIVERED Our most popular art classes in 2017 were Denise Durkin's Grammar of Drawing, Christine Gregory's Get Up Get Painting and Keep on Painting and Sarah Brock's ABC of Painting.
OPEN STUDIO SESSIONS WERE AVAILABLE EVERY TERM These low cost, accessible sessions provided the opportunity to socialise and create art.
HOURS OF ART INSTRUCTION DELIVERED
Our qualified art tutors are specially selected for their specialist craft skills.
Inverlochy Art School partnered with Leap Australasia Ltd to install our new heating system in July 2017. Leap's generous contribution of donated radiators and expert advice made the ideally suited, gas heated water radiator system possible. On behalf of the creative community that will use Inverlochy House in the future, we offer our sincere appreciation.
REGISTERED CHARITABLE STATUS
This year Inverlochy House achieved charitable status. This will allow us to focus financial resources on our core business of delivering art education.
ATTENDED ART CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS In 2017 Inverlochy held a wide variety of classes targeted at different groups in the community. We held specialist classes for children and young people as well as classes to both introduce and develop core craftsperson skills in painting, printmaking, jewellery and sewing.
Our vision is underpinned by four themes
This theme is a key enabler of our vision. We value openness and accessibility both physically and in the heart.
This theme speaks to the way in which we want to work, share and develop knowledge of practical arts in the community.
This theme expresses our conviction that creativity matters. Expressing our creativity is an essential part of being human, and we believe it is important to create and preserve spaces where there is time and space to create.
This theme expresses our connection both with the beautiful heritage building where we’re based and our connections with the Aro Valley Community we are part of.
