The Arts of Coffee Series #1: Coffee Painting with Sound of Nature
Love to drink coffee but don't know what to do with the used coffee ground?
Do you know that you can make beautiful paintings with the used coffee ground? And the good news is NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
This workshop was designed for nature lovers. Besides learning how to use or manage our waste in a creative way, this event is a good opportunity to get out into nature at the Botanic Gardens, where the workshop will be conducted.
Local visual artist Vincent Seet will teach you how to use the coffee ground to do your own paintings.
Michele Chong, a professional musician, will also use singing bowls to partner the pure sounds of nature to create a therapeutic effect.
In this lush green setting, you will not only paint but open up your senses; see, listen, feel and connect with nature. we translate those senses into inspiration and bring life into the painting with each stroke of our brush.
Creating a beautiful piece of art from your soul
