Create your own work of art in the form of a book

2 x 6 hours Class size 10 to 30     label $150

Looking for unique things to do with friends this weekend? Join Live Life Happy for their hands-on painting course and create a stunning artist book to use after class.

This painting course provides bookmaking and art beginners with an opportunity to have fun, explore a new creative outlet, plant seeds of ideas and gain experience of how artists books may be incorporated with existing personal art practices or as a whole new adventure into art.

You'll be making this concertina art book from scratch and then painting covers and pages using an intuitive painting process of layering with transparent paints, stencilling and mark-making that's fun, easy and totally unique.

There will be dancing (to loosen up), splashing, spraying, scraping, dripping, laughing and a head-over-heels love affair with colour. You will end up with a very personal, totally unique artist book that can be displayed as a form of meaningful art about a meter in length!
