About the Event
Get ready to paint outside. Taya shows students how to capture light, colour, and the spirit of Brighton Beach famous Bathing boxes with demos and one on one help on the beautiful beach of Port Phillip Bay.
You’ve probably seen photos of the Brighton Bathing Boxes, 82 distinctive multi-coloured beach huts lining the foreshore of one of Melbourne’s most exclusive neighbourhoods. They’re one of the most photographed spots in the city, but how do you get them painted?
While most people visit them as a colourful photo opp in Melbourne, the Brighton Bathing Boxes do have a lot of history behind them. In fact, they were built more than 100 years ago when Australians were a little more modest and were used by women for privacy when changing into their swimwear.
While Bayside council has periodically built and sold new boxes in recent years, it is rare for existing boxes to hit the market. They are tightly held, often passed down through generations. Each of the Brighton Bathing Boxes has its own unique characteristic.
The most popular, by far, has to be Box 2 which features the Australian Flag. Our favourite is the Katsushika Hokusai-inspired blue-and-white wave box or the VW van declaring that ‘Life’s a Beach’ to all those that wander past.
