VISITORS can explore their inner artist when the Chelsea Heights Community Centre hosts a ‘pop-up art event’ on Saturday 25 March.

The interactive day will include workshops to suit all ages, and there will be a range of guest artists and musicians.

The artistic facilitators from the Permesso collective will offer an opportunity to be creative, and through a process of meditation and intuitive painting, participants will be able to paint on a large mural canvas to be displayed at the centre.

Another highlight of the event will be the high-energy African drumming.

There will be a range of drums and shakers available to encourage people to play.

Kingston artists will host a teaching session on matchbox art, which participants get to take home. Children will have their own art space where they can show off their creativity and take part in producing a mural just for kids. There will also be a face painter and refreshments.

Entry is free.

See or call 9772 3391 for further details.
