Create your own mandala at Yeppoon workshop

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will host an exciting creative art workshop on Sunday with participants creating their own mandala.

A mandala is a ritual symbol used to represent the universe and council is excited to announce local artist Kim Warcon will lead the workshop.

Arts councillor Nigel Hutton said the workshop was a great way to discover and explore art mediums, terminology and theory using dry pastel, watercolour, acrylic paints and colour pencils.

"We have tremendous talent in our community and council is committed to providing these opportunities for the community to express their creative outlets," Cr Hutton said.

Kim Warcon is of Kalkadoon and South Sea Island descent and is a self-taught artist with more than two decades' experience, holding three successful exhibitions and having his artwork displayed locally and overseas.

"I'm really excited to host this workshop and give back to the community I love.

"This workshop will see participants create a mandala using techniques of arts practice to explore, manage and express their life experiences. Using short mindfulness exercises, those participating will enter a more creative mindset," Mr Warcon said.

Bookings and inquiries can be made on 4913 3857. The workshop is open to artists of any skill level.
