Happy Art Hour: Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night
Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night is one of the most recognisable art works in the world. The post-impressionist Dutch painter was renowned for his characteristically bold use of colour and expressive brushwork, which made him stand out amongst artists of his era.
Led by teaching artist Jessica Ibacache, you’ll learn about Van Gogh whilst recreating a replica of one of his most iconic works. With chill tunes playing and corks popping, you’ll go home with your very own Starry Night replica. Perfect for a group activity or even as some solo self-care. Let your hair down and explore your creative side. No previous experience is necessary – the only rule is to have as much fun as you can! Come out of the cold and step into a Starry Night.
For this event, you will be supplied with all art materials, wine and nibbles – just bring yourself!
WHEN: Saturday 7 August, 4:30pm – 7:30pm
and Saturday 14 August, 4:30pm – 7:30pm
