Why not spend a Sunday morning in the company of Gozo-based artist Bob Cardona as he gives a live painting demonstration at the historic 17th century coastal watchtower at Dwejra?

See how a piece of art is created, and the processes and techniques that are employed by the artist to produce a finished painting from a blank canvas – all in under two hours!

Through the creative process, we will also learn what inspires this Maltese contemporary artist to paint, and what subjects he chooses to commit to canvas, which can include everything from Gozo-inspired landscapes to portraits and even pictures of people’s pets.

Bob had moved to the UK with his parents at the age of seven returning to Malta in 2016. He now lives in Gozo.
