Happy Art Hour: An Ode to Frida
In celebration of International Women’s Day, we are hosting a very special Frida Kahlo edition of Happy Art Hour. Facilitated by Chilean artist Jessica Ibacache, you will recreate one of Frida’s iconic self-portraits.
While upbeat Latin tunes are playing and corks are popping, you’ll go home with your very own Frida replica. Let your hair down, explore your creative side and celebrate International Women’s Day in a unique way.
Suitable for all levels. No painting experience necessary.
WHEN: Saturday 14 March, 12pm – 3pm
COST: $60 (includes one alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage, nibbles and materials: canvas, paint, paint brushes).
