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

What a fantastic day! Malini was a delightful teacher and gently encouraged us to move out of our comfort zone. Malini was very organised and the day flowed beautifully in her beautiful surroundings. She allowed me to explore my creativity in a safe and encouraging environment thank you Malini, I look forward to the next course with you Lee-Anne

Wow! What a wonderfully creative day we all had. I organized 5 friends to attend 'Painting for beginners Intensive' and this workshop surpassed my expectations. Malini was fun, warm, informative and very professional. She was a delight to be around and open to sharing all she had. We were so impressed with the gorgeous venue, the abundance of guidance provided and a day spent with friends where we could play, be curious and open to a new way of expressing ourselves in the world. Thank you so much. Dx

I really enjoyed the day in Malini's beautiful studio located amongst the trees and greenery of the hills which sets a very peaceful mood. The processes we learnt were very unique from anything I had experienced before but the outcome was amazing. Each step is simplified , well organised and non threatening. Our group was made from people from all walks of life and varied age groups. I would class myself as a 71 year old beginner. Malini is very professional,warm and friendly and puts everyone at ease. GREAT DAY
