Brush up on art at The Hub

Brush up on art at The Hub Image

A botanical and floral art class based in Docklands is busily preparing for an exhibition at The Hub next month.

The exhibition of botanical art, A Brush with Nature will show off the hard work of the University of the Third Age (U3A) class.

Using watercolours, pencils and other mediums, the artists have produced beautiful, life-like images.

“Many in the class have never painted or drawn before and now they are producing beautiful art,” tutor Rhonda Favaloro said.

Gwen White, whose artwork will be exhibited next month, said the class offered the opportunity to learn more about botanical art while, at the same time, refining drawing and painting skills.

U3A has been running the botanical art class at The Hub for the past four years.

It offers a variety of courses to those over 50 who are retired or no longer working full-time.

A Brush with Nature can be viewed every day during October.

For further information, contact The Hub on 8622 4822.
