Logan West Community Art Share Alliance
by Isaac Irons

The Logan West Community Art Share Alliance has received overwhelming interest in recent days for the KRANK holiday classes, beginning in January. The program, which runs for two weeks over the school holidays, offers kids the chance to create their own artwork in the various morning and afternoon workshops.

According to Treasurer and tutor Steven Watson, the workshops offer a great place for kids to spend time in their holidays.

‘The kids themselves love it. A lot of them have never touched clay before, they’ve never touched the glass and made glass pieces before, most of them have never done the sort of work we do, and most of them love it. I haven’t struck a kid that didn’t love doing the classes.’

The hard-working team of artists offer programs including clay sculpting and building, jewelry beading, glass fusing, and mixed media.

The activities are part of the KRANK school holiday program offered by the Logan City Council, which provides low-cost holiday activities for Logan residents aged 5 to 17 years.

Every year the Community Art Share Alliance is overwhelmed with the amazing popularity of the program. According to Mr Watson, ‘The bookings for KRANK opened up at 9 am on Monday morning and were full by 9:01. We cater to nearly 300 kids with the 14 workshops we put on.’

The goals of the Alliance are to encourage and promote the Arts in the community and provide an opportunity for local residents to engage with art in a safe and welcoming facility.
