During her previous adventures, Mrs. Vlefaridou carried out her workshops in amazing scenes and places, like the Louvre museum, the Parisian artistic café The Black Cat, the cottage of Granny Screenprinting, her own living room, the park, the beach, as well as the camping site of Super Hippie.
After all that fun wandering, she decided to house her artistic interests in a brand new art studio. Starting October, every Saturday, our beloved Mrs. Vlefaridou will broadcast from her studio that is equipped with all the necessary tools and materials. By her side, the Computer Pi-Ma-Xi will give us every time the reason to create a unique and original artwork, inspired by the news, an artistic event or a figure from the history of art.
