#24 – Studio Yellow

August 26, 2017

This week we get arty and visit Studio Yellow who provide some great classes specifically designed to help adults connect with their creative self, learn some new skills and stress less.  We met with Natalie at the Manly RSL, and whilst there were a few of the regulars away for this particular session, there was still enthusiasm abound!

Art classes would make for a wonderful gift for yourself or a loved one, so enroll in a class or grab a gift voucher.

Seems fitting that Studio Yellow meets up in the yellow Manly RSL

What brought you to the area?
In 1982, I started dating a boy I met at McDonalds Newmarket. I lived at Ashgrove but he lived in Gumdale. In December 1986, we were married so the Education Department gave me a transfer to Wynnum High School. I’ve been a south-sider ever since. In 1998, I started teaching at Moreton Bay College so I really feel connected to the Wynnum community now. When we celebrated the college’s centenary in 2001, I learn so much about history of the whole area.

Do you have any interesting or memorable experiences in Wynnum that you would like to share?
Growing up I visited Wynnum often. I had 5 cousins (in two families) who lived here so I have lots of very fond memories of family gatherings. My father was also the Drum Major of the Brisbane Excelsior Brass Band so as a child I watched him lead the Wynnum Anzac Day Parade on many occasions.

Love the pineapple theme

What would you love to see in Wynnum?

I would like see more tourists enjoying the area. I think we need a caravan park with camping facilities to attract more visitors. A cinema would be nice too.

It was a great journey to get you into the mindspace of these week’s art theme

Who or What would you like me to cover in future posts on When in Wynnum?I love history so it would be great to see more old photos. There must be lots around, hidden away in family photo albums BF – Before Facebook.

  1. They say that ”Every child is an artist” but somewhere along the way, we as adults lose the ability to truly express ourselves. It is an amazing experience to sit in on an Art lesson by a passionate talented teacher – you soon rediscover that talent!

  2. Sounds great is it for all ages. I am 51yrs but quite unwell at the moment with Pneumonia- once well I would be the retested in doing some art.
