In the city you called home, with us virtually, you will get to pick your favorite spot and paint them in your “City Journal”. Each workshop, we will assign a subject location e.g. coffee shop, park, bookstore...etc. You will need a photo of your favorite subject spot from YOUR city. If you don’t have one it’s ok, perhaps it’s time for you to do some city exploring �.
Express your love for the city you missed near and dear to your heart. Paint to support your favorite small businesses affected by COVID, tag them or share with them your painting as a gift, they will be thrilled to know that you’ve missed them. #supportsmallbusiness

About the artist:
Luka Vujic, a Serbian artist and a self-taught magician. Luka enjoys landscape painting and has recently been fascinated by portrait painting. He has developed various techniques of painting using oils, acrylics and watercolors. He always loves to paint, but he didn't take it seriously until his girlfriend gave him painting kits two years ago. The creative industry is competitive, and it takes a great deal of determination, hard work, and patience to make a career as a fine artist, but Luka is inspired to make this his profession. Apart from the arts he has been learning magic and tricks for more than three years, he wishes to inspire as many people as possible to do tricks and show them how much fun this hobby can be.
