COMMUNITY PROGRAM

 

A series of engaging community activities has been programmed for the 2018 Black Swan Prize for Portraiture Exhibition Season.

 

The public is invited to participate in portraiture workshops (for kids and adults - beginners to advanced), guided tours, artist floor talks, and watch live art demonstrations at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

 

The Perth Cultural Centre will come to life with a digitally printed Community Exhibition on large outdoor display boxes and feature works from our Salon des Refuses, Youth Award Finalists and artworks created with our community partner, Starlight Children's Foundation at the Perth Children's Hospital.

 

Audiences can also witness live portraiture challenges with well-known WA personalities at our Pop Up activities in various locations around Perth.

 

Our portraiture workshops are facilitated by Black Swan Prize finalists or previous winners. They provide participants valuable skills, inspiration, and insights into the creation and stories behind the works our artists create. Most sessions are free to attend.
