An exhibition of works by Kapunda’s Monday Art Group opened at Kapunda Community Gallery Inc. on the 10th of March and runs to the 7th of April.
Maxine Donald began the Monday art classes in 2005. Many of the students have attended continuously since then, with new people joining over the time. The classes introduce beginners to the essential basics in drawing, composition, colour and various mediums.
Maxine, herself a well known artist, is a wonderful teacher, fostering the talents of all students, encouraging them to develop their own style and creativity.
While some students have had some training in visual art, many, while having an interest in art, have only recently found the time or the freedom to nurture their talent. The works are on a wide range of subjects and in various mediums. It is inspiring to see the progress made by each student. Many of them have already sold works in other exhibitions.
