Art and Justice Party at Neil Street Art Studio

On Thursday 23rd April at Neil Street, we celebrated the birthday of one very special friend, Elyshia Yeap and held an art auction to raise funds for a missions trip to Cambodia and Vietnam, during which Elyshia and Jone Naude will be working alongside orphanages to fight against the reality of human sex trafficking.

Artworks were donated by myself and Elza Coufreur, a recent addition to the residency at Neil Street, who is an upcoming contemporary artist from New Zealand. Photography and auctioneering were done sterlingly by Sergio Garcia, a local creative genious and yummy nibbles made by Elyshia and Arielle Yeap.

The set up included various painting stations for party goers to have a shot at painting live and to our delight, the majority of peeps jumped straight in, with a couple of Pollock inspired individuals even painting with their facial features! The evening closed with a dance and wella! Our art and fundraiser night was nothing short of fun and fabulousness thanks to a lot of help from all who attended. What a great cause and Elza and I look forward to hosting many more future events to come at the studio.

If you are looking for a venue for a fundraiser or are wanting a Kid’s party for your child, Neil Street is available for hire and collaborations are welcomed. For all enquiries email


School Holiday Art Workshops

Over the April School hols we had a super fun time at Neil Street Art Studio painting all sorts of colourful, wild and crazy things like pineapples, tropical birds, river rocks, enchanted rainbow clouds and more. Drawing inspiration from the Art movements, Expressionism, Pop Art, Impressionism and my own tips and tricks as a practicing artist, the Kids painted a step by step project in each Workshop, also learning essential painting skills such as Brush types, colour mixing, tones and shades, contrasting colours, self reflection and much more.

60 Kids, 4 days of Fun and 8 Workshops for 2 different ages groups. That’s a lot of maths!

Cant wait for the next School Holidays to do it all over again with all new projects. Coming soon to, an online Booking facility for Neil Street Art Studio, but until then, head to for all the upcoming Workshop info.

Happy Painting from Neil Street Art Studio and Linzi Carter Art.
