I live in the beautiful inner-city Brisbane and regularly go to restaurants with my wheelchair zooming Mother. My reviews have a focus on disabled accessibility into and around the places I visit.

Watch a blank canvas turn into beautiful art
Every Wednesday night at the Community Place in Teneriffe Marcel and his friends hold free Artist Painting Performances. From 6-8 pm you can sit down, relax and become entranced as an artists paints a picture in front of you.

Marcel was painting a beautiful image of a breaking wave the night I went. As he paints he describes to you what he is doing, giving tips and tricks as he goes. I listened rapt as he described how to use dry brush techniques, mixing colours and what to do if you make a mistake.

Watching him paint and listening to him talk was fascinating and entertaining. I left feeling inspired, if not to become an artist to at least give art a go.

If you're interested in taking up lessons Marcel also runs a small art school near Breakfast Creek Ask for a brochure for prices and courses.

While Marcel is the main artists there will be feature artists performing on different weeks. Go along to watch and learn new techniques from a variety of artists.

I highly recommend watching an artist create art, bringing a blank canvas to life before your eyes. Do it at least once in your life, it is an incredible experience.
