Green Square, Landcom & Mirvac Residential, ‘Waste To Art’ Children's Art Workshop

Jane Gillings will be the latest artist to lead an art-based children’s workshop at Green Square. Open to the public - kids (and parents) welcome!

Jane Gillings

Jane’s workshops incorporate found objects; educating kids on how to use recyclable objects in creative ways. Her reluctance to throw anything away has developed into fantastic workshops that have enabled her to explore the possibilities of plastic as a sculptural material.

In an attempt to limit landfill, she collects our discards and fills her studio with them. Materials are meticulously sorted and examined for sculptural potential, eventually being cut, shaped, melted, wired, glued and presented as something else. Something that is unlikely to be discarded.

At the ‘Waste to Art’ workshop, Jane will be teaching children how to create art from found objects - creating works that they can then take home. Considering that children are so much more creative than adults () we’re really excited to see what they come up with!

As well as exhibiting her smaller works in both public and commercial galleries, Gillings is regularly selected for a number of major outdoor sculpture exhibitions including, Sculpture at Scenic World, Sawmillers, Sculpture in the Vineyards, Willoughby Sculpture prize North Sydney Art Prize, and Sculpture by The Sea, where she exhibited for the tenth year in 2016.

Art Pharmacy Consulting is excited to work with Mirvac and UrbanGrowth NSW to be part of the strengthening of the local community at Green Square through art and collaboration.

When: Saturday 5th August: 12-2pm
Where: The Social Corner, 30 Ebsworth Street, Zetland NSW 2017
