In this workshop we will print drawn or painted images on to paper The object is to enjoy the creative process and grasp a basic understanding of different mono printing techniques and materials…to have fun experi-menting with the many possibilities and outcomes. Mono printing will open you up to other possibilities such as collage, hand painted additions, mixed media or inspire you to explore other areas of printmaking.

Marisa Quigley, Racheal Butler & children from Wangaratta’s Chisholm Street School recently composed and performed their song ‘Bullawah Trail’ at The Elders Rock for GANEAA’s official opening of the Giant Rainbow Serpent Ground Drawing.

The students worked with Marisa & Racheal to write this wonderful song based on the Dreamtime Stories from Uncle Freddie Dowling’s book Granpa Milawa Stories. It’s a ripper & we hope they record it!
