It’s that time again! The Cossack Art Award is fast approaching its 27th year and the City of Karratha Arts and Culture Team are working hard to bring another year that promises not to disappoint!

As part of the award, The City of Karratha run a Public Program of art workshops for the broader community to get involved in the event. In 2019 we plan on holding a series of engaging and diverse workshops across the three weeks that the Cossack Art Award runs. Below is our proposed dates and times including some explanations.

Signature Workshops that we have run in the past and will look to continue, combine an art medium with a “twist”.

  • Art Therapy – look at combining some form of relaxation, exercise, energising activity followed by an art tutorial. For example, past sessions have combined an early morning Yoga session, followed by a drawing/painting session or a morning meditation followed by a step-by-step Lotus drawing tutorial.
  • Afternoon/evening creative workshop – look at combining some form of beverage with an art tutorial. For Example, past workshops have included Wine & Watercolours and Colours & Cocktails.

We also engage Artists to run workshops for a variety of age groups including:

  • Children’s Art workshop – usually aimed at ages 2-6.
  • Youth Art Workshop – to engage our youth in creative mediums, typically held at The Base in Wickham

Applications are now open to submit a proposal for facilitation, below are our proposed dates and times (you can suggest alternate e.g. longer or shorter, AM or PM), so please use these time frames as a guide when submitting your concept. The concept and contents of the workshop are entirely up to you and quotes can cover one OR more workshops should you wish to facilitate more than one, however mediums must be differing. All workshops are held at the historic Cossack site, unless specified.
