Don't miss this wonderful display of talent and energy
Picasso once said that all children were artists, but "the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." This problem has been solved by the students at Trinity School for Seniors and their annual Art & Craft Exhibition proves it. All the paintings, cards and crafts were created by people over 60, with the oldest artist an amazing 92. Located at Trinity Arcade Main Hall in the heart of Perth, this inspiring display of talent runs from 14 - 18 October and is well worth a visit.

Trinity School for Seniors Art & Craft Exhitbition

Trinity School for Seniors (TSFS) was founded in 1979 with the goal of providing "companionship through learning". Today, TSFS offers more than 100 classes which are open to anyone over age 60 and held in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

The very popular art and craft classes include watercolour, oil, woodcarving, jewellery, needlecraft and more. Many of these works are featured in the Art & Craft Exhibition with a selection available for sale. Also for sale is the 2019 calendar featuring the work of 12 artists. At only $10, the calendar makes a practical and attractive gift with all funds raised used to support the school. There will also be opportunities to watch artists at work and daily raffles.
