One of the best things about going on holiday — other than the actual break from reality, that is — is sharing accounts when you get back and Instagram pics while you're there. What if, rather than chatting and snapping everything, you took brush to canvas? Whether you're a seasoned painter not sure how to turn your travel tales into art, or you're looking for some skills, motivation and confidence, The Art of Travelling can help.
A new four-week course held at Fortitude Valley's Scrumptious Read, the series is a blend of painting class meets post-holiday storytelling time meets travel inspiration. Artist duo artist duo Eddy & Sandi will unleash their stories and teach you a few new tricks. Come for one, or book into the whole lot — with prices available from the venue.
As well as some great nattering and a creative outlet, attendees will receive all the materials they need, so just bring your artistic self along. The basics, journeying to India, food as art and putting your new talents into practise are all on the agenda — and so is brightening up your house with the kind of vacation souvenir you can't buy in a tourist gift shop.
