For the second year running, the University of Southern Queensland and McGregor Summer School are running the Artsworx program. The school will run from the 10th to the 16th of January 2016 and offers over 30 courses in performing, visual and creative arts for every skill level.

In celebration of their 48th year as well as their contemporary music direction, special guest artist Lior will visit individual music classes, hold an open forum and a concert for students of the 14th of January.

If you are an aspiring musician or you’ve never picked up an instrument, there’s a Performing Arts class for you. The school offers courses in bass, guitar, brass, drums, piano and vocal lessons that cover theory, composition, improvisational and performance skills.

If you prefer making something more tangible, there are plenty of Visual Arts classes as well. Classes cover all different mediums including: ceramics, acrylics, watercolour, pastel and printmaking. They even hold lessons for those of us who are lack the skills to draw little more than stick-figures with a course called “I Can’t Draw!? Learn How You Can”.
