The Tumut Art Society’s Art Experience students exhibited their work last Friday at the 5ways Studio and Gallery.

The ‘Art with Class’ exhibit was a collection from several terms of work, which each term focusing on a different medium. Themes shown in the exhibit included waves, flowers, and rocks, with materials including pastels, acrylics, ink, and multi-medium creations.

Teacher Jennie Forster says the classes are a great way to discover local talent.

“All the work in the gallery is done by local artists,” she said. “The Art Experience students get to dabble in a range of different mediums and have a play. This past term covered tonal impressionism, which falls in between total realism and total abstraction. “

“I teach all over NSW and this is one of the best studios.”

The exhibition will be open for the next five weeks at the 5ways Studio, Thursday – Monday 10am – 3pm with free admission. It concludes October 16.

Art Experience term four commences on November 1, with a focus on drawing and painting animals. Jennie will be exploring wash and charcoal, pastels, and acrylics with her students. Each term goes for 6 weeks and the classes are suitable for all levels. Email [email protected] to get involved.
