Creativity is flowing as the CUA20420 Certificate II in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Cultural Arts kicks off in Murwillumbah. This program brings First Nations women together to not only develop their artistic skills but to share their cultural knowledge & engage with likeminded women.
Working with Aboriginal painter and basket weaver Aunty Tania Marlowe, the women will learn a range of skills such as drawing, painting and print making over 18 weeks, incorporating their cultural understandings and experiences. You might also recognise a familiar face in these happy snaps – North Coast print maker and brilliant ACE trainer Jan Levy is mentoring the class.
The first day was filled with laughter cascading down the halls from the training room – needless to say, the fun factor is already sky high. How fabulous.
