Urban Art Binge (UAB) is an Artist-Run-Initiative created by Emily Fong and Joannah Underhill with the aim of igniting passion for creativity by documenting place through drawing and painting for aspiring and established creatives.
UAB runs a series of workshop blocks throughout the year with taster sessions for interested new bingers to try out as well as running art expeditions to places like Tasmania. Currently based at Juggler's Art Space, and inspired by the urban and natural environment, our workshops not only connect, teach and build essential skills around drawing and painting, they are also strengthening the voice of Brisbane's vibrant, creative community.
