Marino art school Splashout Studios is getting set to celebrate raising $20,000 for charity.

The studio has also set itself the target of raising $5000 for Anglicare’s Star Bear fund by the end of the year.

The group has already donated $5500 to the fund which supports children who have suffered a bereavement.

Splashout co-founder Jenny Tuck said the studio was developing new ways to show the work of its artists while supporting charities.

“Splashout artists have raised more than $17,000 for charities over the past 10 years through raffles and by donating their sales commissions,” Jenny said.

“We’ll be announcing a new series of exhibitions soon and our work is also on show at Cotto Espresso cafés.”

Splashout runs classes for new and experienced artists from its studio at 5 Ravine Street, Marino.

The group also organises workshops for its members locally and overseas and is planning to open a gallery next year.

Splashout Studios can be contacted on 8296 3859.
