Canberrans are invited to participate in a Tuggeranong Arts Centre workshop to celebrate what it means to call Canberra home. The workshops will explore the unexpected delights and quirks of our city as well as provide an opportunity to learn new skills, connect, and tell stories through creative expression.
Award winning artist Lily Platts will be your art tutor and host for the Canberra in Colour Tea-Total session March 14, 1-3pm & 4-6pm. Participants learn visual art skills to create an artwork responding to the Canberra community. Taking inspiration from a work created by Lily during the class, participants will be guided through the process of painting an iconic Canberra bus stop, receiving step-by-step demonstrations along the way. The program pace and structure will ensure you create a work you love, even if you are a complete beginner. And of course, you’ll be able to add your own unique touches as well.
Local musicians, Damon Mudge and Rourke Puksand will perform while you work, providing inspiration and space to create in between each stage of your artwork. A delicious grazing platter, prepared by popular Canberra caterer The Lazy Grazer, will indulge you, as well as local wines and beers (for our 18+ Unwine-d ticket holders) and selection of tea and sweets.
