Hello everyone!

Welcome to Spring although Winter has certainly decided to let us know she is not done yet!
This month we celebrate and embrace learning, introduce you to some staff and let you know some exciting new activities we have coming up. We hope to see you at the Hub this month….
 

 

Meet Oscar Camorra
 

 
Oscar is a supported employee at Eastern Hub.He helps set up rooms for hirers, assists with minor maintenance tasks, answers the phone and does some administration tasks. He likes the people here – they make him feel welcome.
 
Working with Paul the gardener, Oscar assists with groups when they visit. At the moment Oscar looks forward to Fridays at the Hub as we have students from St Margaret’s visiting and participating in our community garden, all abilities Yoga, Art studio and Music. Oscar likes seeing the children learn.
Oscar does art at Eastern Hub on his non-working day. In the Art Studio with David and Teresa he makes gift cards for sale at Eastern Hub’s reception. Oscar creates small artworks, such as drawings of buildings, animals and other things. He is currently making a stamp image of the Eastern Hub building and is also a regular contributor to KART, the KSL assembling publication of participant artworks.
 
A talented artist, Oscar’s work can be seen in reception at Eastern Hub. Oscar is always willing to help, is very professional in his manner (often reminding other staff to wear their name badge!) and has a cheeky sense of fun. Come and say Hi to Oscar on Wednesdays and Fridays when you are next at the Hub.
 
 
Adult Learners Week at Eastern Hub

Life Learning:  Yes You Can Draw...Amaze Yourself! 

We are excited to be working with Geelong Sustainability for their life learning drawing workshop

September 14, 2017 6.15-7.30 pm
Art Studio, Eastern Hub 
Cost: $12 + $3 for materials

What's it all about
This is a casual drawing class for you to easily learn how to master drawing basics with shortcuts. You will be amazed at how much you can learn in 75 minutes. 


What will we cover?
You will learn picture design and picture planning short cuts.  You will understand how to convey 'something' in your art work - including brief drawing exercises for conveying emotion and avoiding drawing errors.  You will plan and prepare the mock up for your mini 'masterpiece' that will inspire you to keep creating.  You will be using pencils and acrylic paint in this class.

Who will be teaching?
Janine Hellard has assisted children through to seniors develop an understanding of how they can maximise their capabilities and produce art works that they both enjoy creating and of which they are duly proud.
