Welcome to our second newsletter for the 2022 Warrnambool and District Easter Arts festival. The committee is putting the finishing touches to our programme and finalizing the registrations of all the upcoming events.
We are very excited to have been approached by various churches and community groups asking to be included in next year’s festival. St. Joseph’s parish in Warrnambool will be involved. They will be running sculpture workshops featuring Mount Gambier stone sculptured into sheep. This a 6-week course leading up to Easter and the sheep will be displayed at various locations including the Church.
We have decided to increase the first prize for the Warrnambool and District Artists Society competition to $2000.00 and there will be six prizes of $200.00 for various categories of art. We are thrilled to once again work with the WDAS.
The Warrnambool and District Baptist Church is hosting puppeteer Chris Elkington from Melbourne on April 12th and 13th. These events will be open to all school age children and will feature workshops and puppet shows. We are extremely excited to have Chris participate in our festival. Chris is also a teacher and relates extremely well with children.
I hope I have whetted your appetite to become involved in your festival for next year.
