They say Adelaide’s a boring city. I beg to differ. Often dubbed as “The Festival City”, Adelaide has an overwhelming arts and cultural scene where every street and corner blossoms with picturesque scenes and year-round festivals which are the result of art involvement. In such a city, one cannot help but admire the arts scene that is so intertwined within its core, and thus involve themselves and become a small but definite part of it.
One of the bigger contributors to Adelaide’s art scene though, sits on the fringes of Adelaide’s very own Chinatown - one of Adelaide’s main cultural precincts. SixteenO’s Art Bar offers arts classes all year round, and are offering Summer Holiday Classes for those who would like to indulge themselves in the Adelaide arts scene and learn a new skill over the summer holidays. The art school takes pride in being able to teach students of all levels, no matter how much a student has been exposed to art before attending their classes. Students who had previously not touched a paintbrush in their entire life have gone on to have art pieces showcased in exhibition halls.
SixteenO’s Art Bar teaches various forms of art. This summer holidays, they have gone out of their way to provide 8 different art classes to teach the different art forms. The art school aims to not just assist in helping more people to learn the ropes of traditional and modern art, but also to understand art which is everywhere around this vibrant artsy city.
