Interested in exploring your creative side?

Come paint and sip a glass of wine with Dion Cupido in a small group for a 90-minute session playing with colour and mark making looking into Dion's process in developing his work.

Explore a different approach to expressing your inner creativity and finding your inspiration.

The session will include a hands on approach to creating your authentic work of art, starting with a practical exercise in doodling(automatic writing) with charcoal, then moving along to working on a blank primed unframed canvas with acrylic paint, which can be taken home at the end of the session.

Each individual will be provided with a glass of wine, charcoal, acrylic paint and brushes to work with during the session.
