2029 will be the bicentenary of the European colonisation of Western Australia. In just over a decade we will celebrate Captain Stirling’s arrival and the establishment of the Swan River Colony on 1 June 1829. The spotlight will once again be turned on history, just as it was when we celebrated the sesquicentenary in 1979. What other milestones in Western Australia’s history have been celebrated? Are there complications that we should be aware of? How might our understanding of history have changed by 2029?

Between 1850 and 1868 close to 10,000 male convicts arrived in Western Australia from Britain. Far from being the detrimental influence many predicted, these ‘lags’, the detritus from the iniquities of the English legal and penal systems, injected new life into a stagnant economy. Despite a high percentage of original serious criminality among them, the vastly different environment in this most isolated of British settlements had a positive influence on these refugees from the cruel prisons and hulks of the Home country. The convict system in W.A. proved to be forward thinking and benign by comparison with the systems of earlier decades in New South Wales and Tasmania. In consequence, many of the convicts who were landed at Fremantle subsequently became valuable citizens, helping to lay the foundations of early, modern Western Australia. Social historian, Bill Edgar, has a special interest in 19th century colonial life. He is a descendent of New South Wales convict, John McGarry and Van Diemen’s Land convict, James Aylett. The research into his ancestors’ forbidding struggles in the new land has been a considerable influence in the compilation of this current work. (Book will be available to purchase for $35)

As any respectable dynasty, the Olympians have changed their king a couple of times. Currently, Zeus, together with his wife/sister, Hera, are the monarchs of a dysfunctional family. Zeus, who holds the aegis and a known womanizer, is sometimes thwarted in his amorous adventures by Hera. The whole family is made up of gods and goddesses, each one having authority over diverse aspects of life: war, wisdom, marriage and so on. In this course we'll explore this and other Greek myths dealing with the origin of the universe and diverse aspects of nature like night, day, the sea, mountains, and so on, and the different families of goddesses and gods.

Lino Printing – Beyond Black and White will be an intermediate level course that will introduce students to the process of multi-coloured lino printing. This course would still be suitable for beginners (esp. those who like a challenge) as we will begin the course by doing a single colour lino print design to make sure we can all wrap our heads around how the process works. However, the main focus will be to produce a final collection of prints with 3 or more colour separations, using the degenerative process of removing more and more lino from your block with each layer until the block is eventually destroyed by the end of the process – meaning your prints will be exclusive, limited edition pieces. During the course we will look at examples of this process used by artists who have mastered the craft, and investigate the variations in materials & equipment, as well as looking at alternate methods that can be used to incorporate layers of colour into your lino printed artworks. 
Students will need to bring some inspiration and/ or pre-developed ideas & sketches from which they will create their designs, and a portfolio or box to keep their prints in. If students are working on pieces at home and would like to incorporate these into their work or receive feedback/ direction they are welcome to bring these along also.
Students who have their own carving tools (and are happy to use them) should notify the SPLC coordinator. All other tools/ materials will be provided.

Tai Chi Kung Fu is a complete system of Chinese martial art developed many centuries ago based on Taoist philosophy. Although each movement had been designed for hand fighting, its gentle flow and gracefulness are now also recognised as a good form of exercise. With constant practice, Tai Chi can promote good health and relaxation. The original form of Tai Chi was first developed by Master Chan. Since then, various styles had emerged, each with some variations and characteristics. The form of Tai Chi to be covered in this course is the Wu Style which consists of 108 movements. This introductory beginner’s class will cover the first 30 movements of Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan. INSTRUCTOR: Stephen Ho. Stephen is a retired academic in engineering. He learned Tai Chi Chuan in Hong Kong when he was a teenager. He continues to practise Tai Chi and Chi Kung over the years. In Australia, he followed Master Michael Yung for a few years and improved and perfected his forms under Michael’s supervision. He has been running Tai Chi classes at various venues in Perth for over 20 years.

The Stay on your Feet campaign promotes this particular sequence as falls prevention. Flowing movements and the powerful Chi Kung is especially effective for healing and relaxation.

This includes colour mixing, brush control and planning a composition. Each lesson starts with a warmer and is followed by a main activity based around a theme. Themes include still life, floral and landscape subjects.
