About PAINTING WITH TEXTURE

β€œThe universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”- E. Gilbert

Does a whole weekend of creating beautiful textured, layered art sound like heaven? Then come with me on a personal journey into my painting process, and let me share a whole lot of different texturey goodness with you!

Don't worry if you haven't been painting for ages! We have wonderful intentions, but life gets in the way. We will re-ignite those creative fires, and delve deep into texture and colour, using my signature lace, leaves and swirly lines. You will take your paintings to new levels of depth and richness ... (And that's just part of it!)

Please note: PAINTING WITH TEXTURE is a great follow on to my popular one day intensive workshop, PAINTING WITH BEGINNERS. But if you'd like to skip ahead and spend a whole weekend making art with texture, then you can start right here!

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

This two day workshop was a next level up from beginners one day course. I loved the way Malini gives her whole self into this process and al she brings. It was so much fun, great information and tips and the whole process was an allowance to get out of any expectation and the ornate way we melt into the space and each task at hand. The workshop is a most wonderful space amungst the trees and the space is so light and the whole experience for me transforming and absolutely inspiring to get going
