label $10 - $25 (Earlybird price of $20 applies if you book into a public session 5+ days ahead, otherwise $25 per guest when you book for 1+ guests, $15 for 5+ guests, $10 for 10+ guests)

Join us on a journey to unleash your inner creativity! Based in the Iconic Red Rattler Theatre in Marrickville, explore your creativity, learn or hone a new craft, and create some incredible art!

Abstract has been created to help ignite your passion for art and to inspire you to see the world more vividly, fluidly and openly. We want to help you find the beauty and opportunity in the everyday.

An international multimedia artist hosts this class to help guide you through an evening of pure creativity and self-discovery. Joined with designer cocktails crafted by our resident Monday mixologist who comes along every week to give you the "ooh ah ah" sensation whilst you make your works of art.

Everyone is welcome no matter your art experience; in fact, we encourage you to come and experiment with new artforms or reunite with mediums that fallen out of touch. This class was started by a group of queer humans who aim to make a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community and beyond.

The abstract sketch and sip family welcomes you to create, let go and relax, and help you in who you create yourself to be! Everyone will leave with an artwork to be proud of.

Please note: This class does include some edgy queer visuals that are not appropriate for children. If you are interested in doing this with your child, I strongly encourage you to book a private class and let your teacher know that there will be kids. Samuele can make the kids some mocktails and adults some cocktails and make sure that everything involved is 100 per cent kid-friendly.

What you'll get
All the materials are supplied and everything created in Abstract are original artworks that attendees can bring home, exhibit, sell, or whatever they please with. There is a full bar as well with specialty cocktails available.
What to bring

Suitable for

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a nice gift for her, gift for mum or Xmas gift.

Your teacher

Heya beautiful people!

My name is Samuele and I’m a multimedia artist. I thrive on creating work across mediums that best exemplifies the emotion or experience I want to exhibit. I was paid to move to Australia five years ago to exhibit my art and live my best artist life. I have since exhibited in roughly 10 exhibitions including five solo exhibitions.

Prior to Australia I studied Fine Arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and had my work displayed in galleries around Europe, the USA, New Zealand and Australia. I am extremely passionate and dedicated to what I do but I do not take myself too seriously!

I am best known for my explosively colourful paintings that depict how I experience Synesthesia, a distortion of my senses where I see colour with sound, smell, touch and taste. I have always been interested in installation art because it has the power to immerse people into a new reality for a moment.

Recently I have also been working on a fantastic spatial design that plays with every single sense in order to replicate emotions. In February 2020, I won Midsumma Australia Post People’s Choice award for an installation I did about the emotional reaction of people living with serious illnesses. Art can make a change!

As a teacher, I love creating a fun safe space where you are free to explore your creativity. I want to encourage you to dig into your imagination and create things that no one has ever seen before. I believe that this exploration is crucial for our growth as a community. I am continuously exploring from 2D materials (painting, sketching, etc), digital materials (Adobe suite, video, photography, sound, light, etc), 3D (resin, clay, wood, metal, glass, cardboard, etc), to performance (movement, body, dance, etc).

If there is anything you would like to explore that isn’t up in here, message me so I can see if I can make it happen. I want you to feel engaged, stimulated and welcomed to learn more while having the best time. I also do private lessons Tuesday through Wednesday. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
