Studio Forrest is an arts initiative aimed at developing collaborative and individual artwork on selected themes.
The group is predominately peer led, focusing on skill sharing rather than a teacher/student model although some workshops relating to the theme may be offered.
Participants have the opportunity to explore different mediums and be involved in group exhibitions and activities and work from a studio space at the Community Hub precinct in Forrest.
The Colac Otway Arts Trail has a huge benefit to the community on many different levels, intrinsically and financially. But mostly, it is a celebration of the artisans in our community and encourages locals and visitors alike to visit our creative spaces. Follow our journey as we uncover all the shire has to offer.
