The group has recently successfully applied for two grants. One is a $500 grant from Nillumbik Council for easels and the other is a grant for $3,000 from the State. This latter grant is for: a series of interviews of the artists in the group; some demonstration videos on how to approach watercolour, acrylic and gouache painting; a series of gift cards; and a photobook showing the group's work during the Covid-19 lockdown. Congratulations to Leanne Ipsen, Brenda Smith and Judy Vizzari for pursuing the grant opportunities and thanks to Fiona Vuong from the Council for assisting with the applications.
