Art Club – May

Art Club - May 2020

Welcome to Art Club online – where the Incinerator Gallery comes to you.

Our art educator Gina Panebianco invites you to learn about the role of windows, doorways and openings in painting from the comfort of your own home.

Please take a photo of your self-portrait drawings and share them on InstagramFacebook, or our Facebook Group Incinerator Art Club.

Use the hashtag #IncineratorArtClub so everyone can share and support each other, just as we do during the program at Incinerator Gallery.
