Colour & sip workshop: Science Week

Colour & sip workshop: Science Week

Where & when

Wed 17 Aug - 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM



Join marine scientist Zuhairah Dindar and artist Merran Hughes Zuhairah and escape the winter blues by immersing yourself under the sea with mindful colouring in.

Zuhairah will present a short film showing scientists’ work diving in NSW waters. You will learn about the wonderful species and habitats of the coastal waters of Sydney and marine science processes. Come along and hear about our local fish and marine plants, the practices of marine science and the importance of ocean protection.

After this inspiring film, participants will be invited to collectively work on large-scale colouring sheets based on our local marine habitats in small groups. All works will go towards a large scale art installation that will be launched later this year. Help raise awareness of marine life while mindfully colouring in beautiful drawings created by Merran.

You do not need any formal visual art training to attend the classes. All you need is a sense of fun, a willingness to learn and an eagerness to meet other art lovers.

Refreshments and all colouring materials will be provided. Please bring your I.D. if you wish to drink alcohol. Feel free to bring your apron or wear clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on.
