Dynamic Portrait Painting in Oils at McGregor Summer School

There is no denying that the founders of the McGregor Schools were visionaries.
From humble beginnings back in January 1969 - with three painting classes and 43 students – the McGregor Summer School has grown to become the ultimate creative arts retreat.
Now entering its 44th year, the School is a leader in the field of packaged arts workshops, offering up to fifty classes and attracting hundreds of participants and an impressive line-up of tutors from across the nation.
It has become a meeting-place for like-minded people; artists, enthusiasts and administrators with a shared love of the Arts.
Beautiful music is made by students in violin, viola, cello, double bass, jazz bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, percussion, piano and jazz vocal classes.
Masterpieces are painted, drawn, sculpted, stitched and carved in the fine art studios. Painting enthusiasts can learn how to produce Dynamic Portraits in Oils, go on a Pastel Adventure or Draw the Wild.
A range of creative arts alternative such as Bead Embroidery, Creative Writing, Calligraphy, Digital Photography and a variety of Jewellery Making classes round-out the program.
It is a place where absolute beginners can work side-by-side with more advanced and even professional artists in a creative wonderland.
The ten-day Arts Retreat is the ultimate get-away package; offering a relaxed and stimulating environment to create your very own works of art alongside the best tutors in the country by day and, in the evening, enjoying a full program of social and entertainment options including concerts, slide-shows, trivia nights, exhibitions, markets and, to top it all off, a masked ball.
That’s the McGregor Experience!
So, whether you’d like to treat yourself to creative escape or your children to a music or POP Youth Arts experience, the McGregor Summer School is a fabulous option.
The McGregor Summer School will run from 4-14 January at USQ, Toowoomba - for further information visit or contact Liz or Christine on 07 4631 2755.
