Create your own painting to take home under the tuition of one of our resident artists.

For this fun class, no experience is needed and you'll be challenged to create your own unique, individual painting. No stencils are used and all materials are included.

Our social art classes provide a relaxed and encouraging group atmosphere for participants to be assisted through the process of painting. This class makes also a great opportunity to catch up with friends or hold a fun corporate team building activity. Have tons of fun, unwind, make new friends and take home your own unique masterpiece ready to hang.

Unlike any other social art class, these classes generate as many unique individual works as there are participants employing the methodology, mindset, and attitude of the artist. This is not a decoration experience.

Robert Henderson, a Wiradjuri man whose tribal name is Birrunga, is the owner and principal artist of the multi award winning Henderson Gallery and Birrang Dining in Brisbane’s CBD.

Robert is dedicated to fulfilling his Cultural responsibilities, following and practicing the central Wiradjuri law of Yindyamarra, which is ‘to do something slowly, to respect, to be gentle, to be polite, to honour’, a path he readily acknowledges challenges him to grow daily.

The Henderson culture is underpinned strong social conscience in principal and in practice, which sees Robert spend time with Indigenous prisoners on a weekly basis.

Robert’s motto is ‘If not for me, then whom’, a tenet which has resulted in the founding of the charity, The Wayne Weaver Foundation, a fledgling organization whose focus is on addressing transport of Indigenous prisoners in SEQ to attend the funerals of loved ones as well as pre and post release, transition and reintegration programmes.

Robert holds positions on a number of boards and panels including the QLD Poetry Festival Board; QTIC Indigenous Champions Network and Member of the Goldbridge First Nations People Reference Group.

Robert is a practicing visual artist whose narrative works explore the spirituality of the Wiradjuri people, in historical and contemporary contexts. Robert enters the Archibald Prize each year and his works are held in private collections across the country.
