A series of engaging community activities will be programmed for the 2018 Black Swan Prize for Portraiture Exhibition Season.
The public will be invited to participate in portraiture workshops (for kids and adults - beginners to advanced), guided tours, artist floor talks, and watch live art demonstrations at FRANK at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
The Perth Cultural Centre will come to life with a digitally printed Community Exhibition on large display boxes, and feature the Youth Award Finalists and artworks created in partnership with our community partner, Starlight Children's Foundation.
Audiences can also witness live portraiture challenges with WA celebrities at our Pop Up activities in various locations around Perth.
All workshops will be facilitated by Black Swan Prize finalists or previous winners and most will be free to attend.
