Who We Are

Glyde-In Community Learning Centre, 42 Glyde Street, East Fremantle, offers courses, talks and activities that we hope will enrich your enjoyment and knowledge, and foster a healthy community life.

We aim to be a source of learning that doesn't cost the earth, that doesn't need prior knowledge or qualifications, and doesn't ask for a huge commitment of your time. Our courses are non-competitive and informal. Tutors are from all walks of life, and we welcome more! The Centre is run by a volunteer Management Committee, and four part-time staff members. We generate much of our funding through membership and course fees, and are also supported greatly by the Town of East Fremantle, who provides our building and its maintenance, and very substantial funding.

Glyde-In gratefully acknowledges the support of staff and councillors of East Fremantle Council.

Note:  Concession eligibility is for those holding an Age Pension Card, a DVA Card or a Health Care Card (not National Seniors' Health Care Card).

Art pushes limits, broadens minds and stimulates conversation. Artists throughout history use the same elements to create their work - line, colour, tone, texture, space, shape and form - yet no two pieces are the same. We will explore each of these fundamental art elements and show through examples how important they are. Wonder why you love some art works and dislike, even detest, others? Find out how your responses are manipulated; learn about artists basic design principles. Not surprisingly, they are used in advertising and fashion too to encourage greater public consumption. Images will be shown to demonstrate how balance, movement, unity, emphasis, repetition and contrast are used to construct the works and to draw you in. Karen McKay is a gallery guide and a life-long art scholar. Monday 7 & Tuesday 8 January, 11am-12noon. Two sessions $24 / $16. 2 sessions: $24 / $16 conc. Single session: $12 / $8 conc.
