Art Sparks: Free community workshops
With Maria Cofinas

Foyer Gallery
28 July – 23 August 2019

Art Sparks, a Living Studio residency by 2018 CAPO/BAC Inclusion Award recipient Maria Cofinas, invites the public to watch, join in and be opened to the power of art and creativity. A range of free workshops is being offered on Fridays and Sundays, to which all are invited.

The workshops will provide a safe, encouraging and creative space, a container to allow Maria and those that pass through opportunities to further access their inner voice and intuition using a variety of creative practices. Maria’s approach is accessible to all in the community, no matter what your age or experience, and encourages exploration and experimentation.
