What's happening in May

Watsonia Library has a display of some of your pieces, so if you are over that way, pop in and have a look!! 
Thanks to Marg Lanne & Maryanne Noonan for organising this.

The next workshop will be on Saturday 22nd May, 1pm - 4pm @ Burrinja in Upwey, all welcome.

I called in to Belgrave South Primary School to see how they were getting along.  They are converting the corridor outside the art room into an underwater landscape. They have been very busy exploring options & ideas and it's looking fantastic. The school children are going to make a cave for us to accommodate the fluro pieces, they now have black lights installed in their corridor and everyone is getting excited about what fluoresces and what doesn't. Lots of distance estimating, measurements etc. involved, so keeping them busy. The video tape & plastic grass is also being put to good use.  It is great to see the kids out of school hours with their video tape & crochet hooks - Well done Elizabeth, you certainly are getting them inspired. They are gearing up for education week 16 - 19 May, so I'll take some photos and let you know how they went.

Mark Rodrigue, Parks Victoria (Marine & Coasts) is getting some images together & an annotated presentation of Victorian Reefs for us to use publicly, which is wonderful!!  Thank you Mark. Both Mark and Wendy Roberts (Reef Watch Victoria / Melbourne Museum) have been very supportive, thank you both very much for your support and enthusiasm for the project.
