WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?
Absolute Beginners: You’ve never EVER painted before, but you’re curious, maybe even a bit scared. You don’t have a clue where to begin. This one day intensive painting class will be perfect for you!
Now And Then Dabblers: You paint ‘a little’ from time to time. You love it, but you never seem to have the time to learn ‘properly’. Painting seems to be an indulgence, where’s the time for it? No worries – my seven step process and intensive but fun approach will give you ‘proper’ structure to build your practice around!
WHAT IS THIS WORKSHOP ABOUT?
Have you ever looked longingly at a beautiful piece of art, and thought, “I wish I could do that, but I don’t have a creative bone in my body!” Or are weekly art classes impossible, because you just can’t spare the time?
If you’ve answered ‘yes’, then you’re in the right place, Painting for Beginners was actually designed for you!
This is a ONE DAY intensive, where you learn my unique seven step process to create beautiful, strong, abstract paintings from scratch – even if the last time you painted, your mum said, “that’s lovely, darling!” and popped it on the fridge.
The day is packed with content, insanely busy and so much fun! You will be guided along one of the many pathways to creating art, and totally surprise yourself at just how much you learn in just ONE day. (And best of all – no need to buy anything – just rock up with nothing but your lunch, as ALL materials, along with extensive notes, are provided). Just watch the video below to take a peek right into my workshop and I hope to see you there!
In Malini's workshop I learned some great textural and glazing techniques as well as practical steps to prepare a board or canvas. I developed my understanding of what abstract is and Malini up my mind to the possibilities of what I can achieve in my own style of abstract art.
The class was really well structured and kept us busy learning new things. I learned how to create beautiful abstract pieces, from start (preparing the canvas) to finish (sealing the painting). There was a lot of information but interestingly, not too heavy to consume. I took heaps of notes and was able to review and understand them when I got home. The tips given are really useful - they help guide you through what I've previously experienced as bottlenecks to my creative process. Now I feel more confident to start an abstract piece and have the tools to erase what i've done and start all over again. Very enabling. Thank you Malini!
This one day class was SO MUCH FUN! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it and couldn't believe how quickly the day passed. I was so pleased with how much I learned. I can't wait to paint again!!!! Xoxo
