Budding artists shine

SHARI-LOUISE Turner has just begun her journey as an artist and holiday art workshops by Sue Capewell have helped her hone those skills.

"I have been doing art for a couple of years now," Miss Turner said. "I mainly do cartoon and animation."

High school student Miss Turner said it was while drawing on her school books she realised she may have a talent for art.

"Nothing really inspired me to take up art at first," Miss Turner said.

"But now my favourite thing about art is that it inspires me to write more stories."

Artist and teacher Sue Capewell has had success with her summer holidays art workshop and plans to continue it in the future.

"I have done the September holidays and now these holidays and it has been really popular with the kids," Mrs Capewell said.

"I can take up to six kids and plan on doing these for all school holidays."

Mrs Capewell can only fit up to six children at a time on any given day and is working with the Gayndah Art Gallery.

"We hope to get these same sorts of things going on at the Gayndah Art Gallery in the larger spaces," Mrs Capewell said.

"The kids have had fun and we have had different kids each day so the word of mouth is good and we hope to have that roll-over effect."

The service Mrs Capewell provides is a good spot for budding artists like Miss Turner, who learn a lot from their teacher.

"I like to encourage young artists to become the artists they want to be," Mrs Capewell said.

"Shari is going to be one of our upcoming artists of the month in March."

Miss Turner's art will be on display at Mrs Capewell's art shop Citrus Art Central.

Angie Hoskinson's daughter Zoe took part in her first art class with Mrs Capewell.

"She has been excited to do something a bit different for the holidays," Mrs Hoskinson said.
