Come and make this world brighter

Hands Across the World's popular Paint for Hope workshop series continues with a fantastic new event at Phoenix Academy at Beatty Lodge this December.

This unique art workshop is suitable for all skill levels, it doesn't matter if you have never painted before - you are sure to be astounded at what you can create in just 3 hours! It's also a great Christmas gift idea for a budding artist!

Held in a fun, social and supportive atmosphere, Paint for Hope is facilitated by talented and friendly artist Gabriela Himstedt, who will provide step by step instructions and guidance to all participants. Learn how to mix colours, try out different painting techniques and uncover some handy tips and tricks along the way.

While everyone will be replicating the chosen feature painting, participants are welcome to add their own personal touches. This could mean making the final painting match your home/office colour scheme or creating a special gift for a loved one.

Spend an afternoon doing something a little different, develop a new skill, improve your knowledge of art and help support a worthwhile cause in an inviting setting.

Every dollar from this workshop goes towards Hands Across the World's Interactive Teacher Training project in Siem Reap. Currently, Hands Across the World is working hard to improve the quality of education in Cambodia through the Interactive Teacher Training project. The program is designed to empower Cambodian teachers to improve their skills to teach English to Cambodian children so they can live a better life and have better opportunities, preventing them of ending up in exploitation and/or human trafficking.

Paint for Hope will be held at Phoenix Academy at Beatty Lodge on Sunday, 8th December 2019, 2pm to 5pm (including breaks). All materials will be provided, including your finished canvas to take home.

The participation fee is $72 per person and afternoon tea with biscuits and tea is included.
