I visited Cairns to facilitate a printmaking workshop for Art Educators on the Northern Peninsular at St Monica’s School. Before the workshop we stepped into St Monica’s Cathedral, which from the outside is a modest brick construction. Inside, it glows with some exceptionally detailed images of Far North Queensland flora and fauna entwined in the many panels of contemporary stained glass.
The Flying Arts workshops covered some techniques for printing, drawing and movie editing that can be used in the classroom. The other tutors were Sue Loveday – drawing and Chris Bennie- editing movies.
I visited the Daintree while I was there, staying at Cape tribulation kayaking in the clear water, and walking through the old growth forest at night.
