NEXT INTAKE On campus: Robina Start date: 23 Feb 2023 Duration: 1 per night
Full Fee

Course overview

The topic for the 23rd February 2023 class is 'Rainforest'.

You choose your own subject matter within a set genre, giving you the freedom to express yourself whilst your facilitator guides you using traditional unconventional techniques allowing freedom of expression.

The objective of the session is to bring the best of your creative-abstract side in an inspired, quirky and individual way.

The workshop will use sustainable materials and equipment where possible.

The rainforest theme inspires awareness of the environment; painting something brings appreciation of the content. By understanding shapes, tones, colours and how they the can be combined in an abstract to represent nature might encourage discussion around the natural work and the importance of sustainability.

No prior painting experience is needed, so even absolute beginners can enjoy this painting experience in a casual, relaxed and fun environment.

We supply everything from paints and aprons to the nibbles and a drink. Our create and sip short course is the perfect way to spend an evening with friends and family.

Included in your your enrolment - you will receive an individual cheese and fruit platter with a piccolo bottle of wine.

After the lesson, you are invited to continue the evening upstairs at a newly opened roof top restaurant and bar.

Our Create and Sip: Contemporary Art topics are always changing, so make sure you check above at the top of the page what the next available topic will be. We offer various create and sip courses, check out or website for others.
