Explore your creativity and arts practice in a creative masterclass guided by artist Leigh Schoenheimer at the Bunya Mountains!
Leigh will guide you through a series of hands-on exercises to visually record and then artistically re-interpret an object of personal significance, enabling you to consider the differences between responding to your subject matter via the eye (perceptually), verses via the mind (conceptually).
The masterclass will expose you to new ways of thinking about your own arts practice and provide you with opportunities to observe, explore and construct new representations emerging from your individual approach to art making. All this in the company of other creative souls at the beautiful Bunya Mountains!
You will need to bring along a small object of personal and/or cultural significance to use as a stimulus (something that will fit in your hand – or a little bit bigger) as well as your preferred drawing media and sketch/notebook. All other materials will be provided.

Leigh Schoenheimer lives and works in Brisbane conducting a contemporary, multi-disciplinary art practice. She was the curator of the 2021 Western Downs Regional Artists’ Exhibition. With her unique approach to ‘expanded’ still life paintings and idiosyncratic assemblages, Schoenheimer’s work has been exhibited in many national art prizes for both painting and sculpture and is held in public and private art collections. She has had 11 solo exhibitions in both public and commercial galleries, with one of these – ‘Iterate | Elaborate’- travelling extensively throughout QLD’s regional galleries in 2021, courtesy of Flying Arts Alliance. An extensive case study of her work is featured in the current, senior, visual arts textbook, ‘Creative Inquiry’, published by Cambridge University Press in 2019. With an extensive background in art education, Schoenheimer’s skills as a presenter and facilitator are also in strong demand.
