In 2022, Geelong Neighbourhood House offered a series of exciting Community Arts Projects. These were called Buildings of Pako, The Growling Grass Frog and Balyang Sanctuary. In partnership with Geelong West Library they have been successfully exhibited and open to public viewing at the library. The Balyang Sanctuary artworks are currently on display at Geelong West Library.
Community Art Project One – Buildings of Pako
During this project, participants learned the basics of perspective drawing and then used pen and wash to make their artwork come alive. This project opened their eyes to where they lived and then took participants through the entire process from first marks on a page to framed artwork. They learned how to draw and render buildings and then how to paint with watercolour. The history of each building was researched and presented with the artworks for exhibition at the Geelong West Library.
