A TEN day event in August will give those who are interested in art and culture the chance to get up close and personal with the artistic process in Noosa.

A total of 69 talented local artists and six galleries will open their studios to the public during Noosa Open Studios - which will take place from August 16-25.

The event will provide an opportunity to watch artists working in their own creative spaces.

President Chris Bell said the event's program was diverse and offered something for everyone.

"The beauty of Noosa Open Studios is that it appeals to all art lovers with such a wide array of art on offer including ceramics, glass, mixed media, metal work, photography, digital media, sculpture and paintings in all media," he said.

A number of workshops will take place during the event, allowing participants to learn new skills, techniques and tricks of the trade.

The region has been split into six locality trails - Noosa, Sunshine Beach, Mt Tinbeerwah, Eumundi, Cooroy, Pomona, to make it easier for visitors to find studios.

All studios and galleries will be open on both weekends of the event, while some studios will also be open during the week and others by appointment.
