With just a few brushstrokes, you can paint your cares away at a new art class in Sandgate. A Painter’s Dream, run by local couple, James and Rebecca de Vries, is offering a painting class with a difference, just in time for Christmas.
“What we really focus on is health and well-being and self-care,” James said. “You don’t need to be an experienced artist or painter, anyone can come along.”
Participants will take home their own original artwork titled “Dragonfly Moon”.
“We paint right alongside the group and it’s an easy step-by-step process,” Rebecca said. “We’re with you from start to finish and you’re free to add anything else you like to the painting – change the colours, or add in some smaller dragonflies or butterflies.
“We get a lot of people who are nervous, but it’s a chance to explore something different.
“There’s a real mindfulness to it and that’s what we focus on.”
A Painter’s Dream will be running regular classes in Sandgate in 2020, as well as workshops for kids during the school holidays.For more information or to buy tickets, go to: www.apaintersdream.comDragonfly Moon painting class Sunday, 8 December, 2pm-4pm SANDBAG, 153 Rainbow Street, Sandgate Tickets: $55 or 2 for $85 All equipment provided
