A Dublin Fringe Festival Commission
"Zoom, Zoom, Zoom Zoom!
I'll (digitally) show up in your room,
We’ll create some art together
You'll cherish it forever!”
-Shout out to the vengaboys!
An online creative club for adults, guided by me, your friendly neighbourhood art fart!
Oh and you get post, I post you an art kit and we make stuff together. Art materials will be sent to you in advance and a play-school level of skills required alongside an openness to connect and creatively explore self-reflection, emotions and goggley eyes! The emphasis is on creativity and playfulness - leave perfectionism and productivity at the door. Dedication to giving yourself time for some silliness and creativity is all you need!!
You just need your fine self and your art pack, there will be one or two additional household items that will be required but we’ll let you know about those in advance. Dress as cosy or as glam as you want! Pyjamas and a bejewelled feather headpiece perhaps?! Have a beverage of choice, whether it's a cocktail (in a can), a cuppa tea or a bottle of Cadet. Super cheese-tastic Spotify playlist to get you feelin’ yourself will also be sent beforehand!
Things will go on for roughly an 1-1.5 hrs or so, with time for chats, maybe a boogie and brutal art crits at the end (totally kidding, I'll be kind).
