Who are these pesky rats???

The Rats, (Regional artists & tutors), are a group of like minded professional local artists, working and teaching within the Fraser Coast Region.

These artists offer a range of professionally tutored art classes and workshops, available locally and throught the state. Sales of original, high-quality artworks and prints are available through exhibition or commercial art galleries. All original works are manufactured within the artists local studios and can be purchased during open studio visits.
The groups goals are to maintain viable and sustainable businesses in a field that they love and also to utilise the life skills honed over the many years of working in the commercial business sector.
A small group of hard-core artists who all have similar prerogatives, participating in a range of community and private arts activities. These activities include the open studio program, an annual exhibition program, artists camps and being in a company of artists who get to know each other and benefit from each other’s tilts at the creative path.
A wide range of workshops, classes and courses are available from qualified and experienced tutors in a variety of mediums and genres. Contact your favourite artist for their workshop program details.
