You will feel hypnotic and creative inspiration, thanks to the dance of pigments on the water. All these psychedelic magic will be accompanied by a pleasant musical background and an unusual visual environment.
The painting process is fun, cheerful and you don’t need to have any painting abilities. Fluorescent paint is spread on the surface of the viscous solution, illuminated by UV light. Then, with the help of various tools, the paint is cut and bizarre abstractions are formed bringing you tangible inspiration and inner peace.

This ancient painting technique originated in Central Asia on the silk road to the lands of present-day Turkey. Through several centuries, people have applied marbled materials to a variety of surfaces. It is often employed as a writing surface for calligraphy, and especially book covers and endpapers in bookbinding and stationery. Part of its appeal is that each print is a unique monotype.

UAC A&C – a multi-disciplinary Art & Craft Academy.
The academy founded by Useful Art for Communities offers the opportunity for emerging artists and craft makers from all levels to teach different techniques of arts and crafts.
The artists, by facilitating the process, share their skills and knowledge to empower citizens through the establishment of educational classes.
Workshop attendees learned a technique and create artworks. After the session, the participants took the artworks home, to be used in their daily lives.
We believe in learning by doing approaches to creativity enhancement and skill learning.
A&C Academy aims to encourage self-sufficiency while practising creativity and providing the platform, knowledge and guidance to initiate and motivate people into the practice of arts and crafts.
