Symposium MAANZ

I attended the MAANZ 2009 Mosaic Symposium, Groundswell at the Mercure Hotel in Brisbane last weekend, with several mosaic artists and students from OzMosaics Studio.

We enjoyed the presentations and workshops. On Sunday we had a mosaic "pink" event in the form of an afternoon tea on the Diva Deck and a sausage sizzle dinner. Of course we made mosaics and watched snippets of videos and slide shows from the making of the Steve Irwin Mosaic Mural Tribute. It was great fun to be together with mosaic mates from as far as Tasmania, Cairns, New Zealand and in between.

We worked on the mural for MANA called Euphoria and it's looking FANTASTIC. Photos coming soon of her glorious tresses. WebKat was here and it was great for everyone to meet up.

We visited Australia Zoo on the Monday after the Symposium and the murals look fabulous on the outer walls of the crocoseum building/food hall. I loved the elephants and tigers and will make a mural of a tiger before Steve Irwin Day 2009.

The train trip to Australia Zoo is fun and the courtesy Australia Zoo bus makes the whole trip simple and relaxing.

Lots of photos coming...busy getting ready for beginner workshops here at the studio tomorrow. The mural panels for Queens Park are being installed next week!

Join MANA if you haven't already, some great fact sheets coming for a Christmas mosaic project very soon!

Keep on creating....enjoy the moment!
Cheers Sandy
creative moments = happiness
