Flying Arts 500 Club celebrated at Art at ‘Toonarbin’ Event
Flying Arts’ 500 Club is a valued group of donors who significantly help us grow our programs and services that support and develop established, emerging and aspiring artists, young people and communities across Queensland. 500 Club donations strengthen our signature event, the Queensland Regional Art awards, and, importantly, help us connect isolated regional and remote Queensland communities through visual arts activities and programs.
The grand doors of ‘Toonarbin’, the magnificently restored Georgian home of early settler, Captain Henry O’Reilly, and former convent, were opened wide to Flying Arts Alliance and guests on Friday, 24 August to grow our 500 Club donor circle at a very special fundraising event.

Small Schools Fund Outcome: Avondale State School
Inspired by scientific exploration processes, students from Avondale State School invited Flying Arts Alliance’s, Kayako (Kay) Watanabe to facilitate a workshop on how to record their observations artistically.
Over three days, the Avondale State School students participated in a variety of printmaking activities facilitated by Kay, centered on (but not limited to) the theme of bugs. After learning about insects in Science, the students were encouraged to apply their scientific knowledge to design suitable plates for printmaking.
