Description

“Life is a big canvas; throw all the paint on it you can!” -D. Kaye

Hi there, I’m Malini, scientist-turned-artist/writer/teacher. I’m delighted you stopped by :) If you’re here because you’ve heard of my unique art workshops for beginners, you're in the right place!

SO ... Is this you?

Have you ever gazed longingly at a beautiful work of abstract art, and thought, “I wish I could do that, but I don’t have a creative bone in my body!” Do you yearn to express your creativity, but you just don’t know how? Are weekly art classes impossible, because you just can’t spare the time? Yes, yes and yes? Well then, things may be about to change for you!

PAINTING FOR BEGINNERS - the ONE DAY INTENSIVE is for...

The ABSOLUTE BEGINNER: You’re the one that’s always been curious about your artistic side, but you haven’t a clue where to begin. Or the one that’s never had the time to attend weekly art classes. Or perhaps it all seems too overwhelming … maybe you feel you’ve left it too late to learn. Hey, I designed this workshop for YOU! In one jam-packed, fun day, you’ll lose that fear of the unknown. And learn absolutely heaps. I’ve got you covered!

The NOW-AND-THEN-DABBLER: So you paint a little. But you love it a lot! And you dream of one day learning how to do it all  ‘properly’. Now’s your chance. Use my seven step process to give you some clear structure. Let my intensive but oh-so-fun approach invigorate you. You’ll be painting with more purpose and passion in no time!

------------------------------------------------------

I meet hundreds of wonderful, worried, would-be creatives in my workshops.And in just ONE DAY, I fill their hearts and hands with possibilities! It’s an insanely busy day, full of laughs and love, and the beautiful art that emerges is just spectacular. This event that began in my backyard just a few years ago, with five young folk who were keen to learn to paint has now grown into my consuming passion and helped transform the lives of so many people.  It is an incredible honour to be part of another’s creative journey, and that delight I witness in my students as they rediscover their creativity… aaah, it makes my heart sing :)

Thank you for your interest in me and my work. It would be my honour to make a difference in your life, and help unlock your creativity!

You have so much joy ahead of you :)

Warmly,

Malini Parker

An amazing class and experience. Malini was brilliant and took us through the abstract art process step by step but in a fun and engaging way. "Leave all your thoughts and ideas at the door and just paint". That mind process takes a bit of getting used to but once in the moment colours and textures just began to jump out from the canvas. It was such a fun day and my mind was so relaxed throughout the day, being topped up by the music and chocolate on hand! Would recommend this course and day to anyone who enjoys art but also enjoys not knowing what will end up on the canvas at the end and to just paint it and run with it.

I really enjoyed the day with Malini her enthusiasm would help a rock to paint, she is a most generous woman. I found that I was so engrossed with what she was saying that when I came to apply what she said I couldn't remember the sequence of things, however she gave us great notes to refer to. I always respond better to being shown what to do so Malini's way of teach was perfect for me. so now I have to get down and make some mistakes and get on with it. thank you Ann

I was first drawn to Malini's workshop by her description of who should attend - someone who didn't believe they had any artistic ability - that was me!! I wanted to have a go at something new and this seemed perfect. What a day! Full on, yet I didn't go home feeling exhausted. Quite the opposite. I felt challenged, supported and proud. The structure of Malini's workshop meant we could get straight into the hands on stuff and it was nicely broken up with the explanations and demonstrations. Her style is one of warmth and humour and I had fun. I felt safe enough to step out of my comfort zone and I had a wonderful day producing my four paintings. Thank you so much Malini!!
