Hey, is that a cow jumping over the moon? That looks like Marge Simpson taking a bath! Oh look! It’s Where’s Wally!

There’s something playful about painting. As an adult, if you haven’t painted for many years; sitting down in front of a canvas with a rainbow of colours on your palette and a paintbrush in hand can evoke joyful memories of painting when you were a kid. Back when times were simple and painting was something you loved doing because it was fun.

Well, we have good news for you! Painting is still fun, and it’s available to you whenever you are ready to play.

In April this year, we decided to add an extra layer of playfulness to our sessions for our artists and our guests. We held a little competition amongst our Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne teams. Each session, the artist could add a little ‘April Fool’ into their painting. A little detail that is not usually there. For example, a man in the moon or an animal shape formed in a cloud.

Our team loved this challenge. They came up with so many clever and unexpected ideas for their paintings. Some of our guests got involved too and added extra elements and narratives to their paintings. Below are a few examples of the clever creativity of our talented team. These paintings remind us that painting stokes our imagination. It invites our Inner child to come out and play.
