The inaugural Gidgets Go Picasso Surfboard Art Workshop was held last Saturday at the Bondi Pavilion and despite the crappy weather it went off! I was so stoked with the response that we got from this, everyone was super lovely, and it was great to hear silence in the room as everyone was in deep creative concentration painting their surfboard artworks.
I led eight workshoppers through a four step cleaning process to prepare their boards for painting and demonstrated some of my favourite old-school spray techniques using Molotow spray paint and a handy palm frond and then let them loose on the supplies.
At the end of the day we ended up with nine completely different artworks, each one a unique expression of creativeness and ready to hit the waves.
The workshop was held in conjunction with Venus Goes Gidget and hosted by myself. Molotow Australia sponsored the paints and more workshops are in the pipeline for August 2015 – so sign up to my blog if you want to come along to the next one! Big thanks also to Matt Fieldes Photography for these lovely photos.
