Pot Plant Painting! May 2nd

We had a crafty Thursday afternoon painting terracotta pots!

Once again I was blown away by the creativity and talent of our students.

We discussed what we would do with our pot plant when we had finished and most of us decided we would gift our creation to a friend or our host families.

With our freshly painted pots we then added a beautiful flower. They looked amazing!

Great job everyone, thanks for a super fun afternoon!

After her studies with Lexis Byron Bay, she plans to work and travel before returning home.

Lucile is from Belgium and lives in the capital of the country, Brussels. She loves to dance and has been practicing everyday for the past four years.

Anna is from Germany and lives in Berlin with her mother. She is a passionate cook and photographer, and also enjoys fashion and culture. She came to Australia to get to know the culture here.

In the future, she plans to study Psychology at university.

Lucia is from Slovakia and is one of five in her family with her parents, sister and brother, plus a dog called Bambi. She likes swimming and cycling.
