A series of engaging community activities have been programmed for the 2017 Black Swan Prize for Portraiture Exhibition Season during the month of November.
The public are invited to participate in portraiture workshops (kids and adults - beginners to advanced), guided tours, artist floor talks and can watch live art demonstrations at FRANK at the Art Gallery of WA.
The Perth Cultural Centre will come to life with a fabulous digitally printed Community Exhibition on large display boxes, featuring the Youth Award Finalists and artworks created in partnership with our community partner, Starlight Children's Foundation.
Audiences will witness live portraiture challenges with "Famous Sharron" and other Perth personalities at our Pop Up activities.
All workshops will be facilitated by Black Swan Prize finalists or previous winners and most are free to attend.
