LEADERS & WORKSHOPS
Colour & Collage with Emily Green
Drawing & Stencilling with Lucas Grogan
Come spend some time with the one and only Lucas Grogan before he gets too famous to speak to any of us. Grogan is an internationally infamous art legend known for his hilarious and heartbreaking masterpieces - many of which hang in major galleries all over the world.
It’ll be fun. Grogan is hilarious. Grogan’s practise spans multiple disciplines. He has collaborated with major brands (and said fuck no to more). He’s widely disliked but curiously respected. You're gonna LOVE him.
(PLUS he's going to be hosting Trivia Night - it's going to be a turn up for the books!)
Weaving with Maryann Talia Pau
We are dying of excitement that our ultimate girl crush, Maryann Talia Pau, is coming to Art Camp 2020!! Maryann is a Samoan-Australian artist and practising weaver based in the Redland's, Quandamooka Country, Queensland. Maryann’s weaving practice is based on exchange and collaboration. Born in Samoa and raised in Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand & Australia, she is a maker of 'Pasifika bling' and co-founder of the Pacific Women's Weaving Circle and Super Native Unlimited. In 2012 she founded the One Million Stars to End Violence project - an international weaving project inviting the public to weave one million stars as symbols of light and peace. The resulting installation was part of Festival 2018 during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. What a total legend!

Painting with Melissa Grisancich
Born in 1987, Melissa is a legendary Melbourne based artist. Her work maintains a firm ethos of using found or recycled objects and she insists on making her works entirely by hand. Her work reflects her interest in surrealism, 60's and 70's record and poster graphics, iconography, symbolism, vintage ephemera and comics. Melissa has gained a reputation for curating the most exciting must-see exhibitions in Australia. Her stunning artworks have been exhibited locally and internationally including San Francisco, Japan and France. We are so excited to get an insight into Mel's creative practices!
