THIS weekend the Whitsunday Arts and Cultural Centre will be bringing something new, fun and a little bit looney to the Whitsundays.
Tooning [cartooning] workshops will be held at the centre this Friday and Saturday, January 16 and 17.
Professional illustrators, Toonworld.tv will bring their raw talent to town and locals have the chance to dig out the pencils and join in the fun. There will be several workshops held over Friday and Saturday split into three categories from children from 5-12-years-old, teenagers and adults.
The vision of Toonworld is simple; they entertain and educate people through fun products and exciting interactive drawing workshops that improve their literacy and bolster their confidence and creativity.
Adults are invited to participate in a cheeky tooning workshop on Saturday evening that incorporates adult humour, sketches and even a few beverages. Whitsunday Arts and Cultural Centre co-ordinator Heidi Ward said the workshops were all part of the centre’s initiative to bring cultivated land-based activities to the area. Bookings are essential via http://www.thewac.com.au.
