If you have used art before or not, this workshop is open to one and all. This includes ANU staff and students. Come spend few hours and try your hand at some art. You can display the created art at Marie Reay for the remainder of the month and then take it back or even sell it. All materials will be provided at no cost and all workshops will be undertaken complying with COVID-19 guidelines.

Throughout the month ANU Thrive will also be hosting an art exhibition on the lower level of Marie Reay and we want to showcase your art!
