Happy Art Hour: An Ode to Frida


FCAC’s popular paint and sip classes are back, this time with 2 sessions! Come and rejoice the life and work of prolific painter Frida Kahlo, with FCAC’s own favourite Chilean artist, Jessica Ibacache. In this class, you will learn about Frida whilst recreating one of her iconic self-portraits. While upbeat Latin tunes are playing and corks are popping, you’ll go home with your very own Frida replica. Perfect for a group activity of even as some solo self-care. Let your hair down and explore your creative side— no previous experience is necessary and the only rule is to have as much fun as you can!  

We advise booking early as these classes sell out fast! 

Provided: Paint, brushes, canvas, a glass of wine and nibbles! 

WHEN: 1 May and 8 May, 4.30pm – 7.30pm
VENUE: ArtLife Studio
COST: $60
