A local artist has set her sights on turning a dull, grey Griffith studio into a colourful oasis for the city's creative children and parents.
For the next four months, Isis Ronan will be hosting her popular community art events from a new pop-up studio on Olympic Street.
The studio is an empty canvas right now, but Mrs Ronan says she has big plans to make it the perfect place for her painting workshops.
"It's a bit empty right now, but hopefully in a month or so people will walk in and there will be a big cardboard castle, a bright colourful wall and an interactive display in the front window," she said.
Mrs Ronan, who also goes by Succa Mum on social media, says her main goal with the temporary pop-up is to restart her 'Mums and Bubs Art Club' and give local parents a fun activity to do with their children.
"One of the things I discovered I'm really passionate about during the past year was making these big cardboard cubby houses with my son," she said.
"So I thought it would be a really fun idea to do that with kids and their parents all in a big group."
"With stress levels so high at the moment, I really just thought it would be an amazing way for parents to bond with their children while doing something fun and creative."
Mrs Ronan has hosted the events before, but she says bringing them into a studio with no carpet will hopefully be a gamechanger when it comes to clean up time.
"As you can imagine, painting with kids is pretty messy," she laughed.
The studio will also be the new location for a selection of Mrs Ronan's other events, but the local artist admitted one of the most exciting aspects of the space was the storeroom hidden in the back.
"My car is absolutely tiny and I have been driving everything around for the past few months so it is amazing to just have that place to put everything to be honest," she said.
Mrs Ronan will only be in the studio for the next four months and she says her search for another semi-permanent place will depend on the community's response to this set-up.
She hopes to host the first 'Mums and Bubs Art Club' out of the studio in June.
"I'm hoping everyone brings the creativity," she said.
