Description

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!

IN DETAIL...

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!

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

I did the Beginner's workshop and have no experience whatsoever. It was so good! Malini is a lovely person and an excellent teacher. I left with 4 paintings that I love! Highly recommend this workshop.

This was a wonderful day full of fun, laughter, learning, and of course - painting. Learning to explore my creative self in such a warm supportive environment surrounded by equally excited but anxious people, guided by the very intuitive and amazing Malini, made for a great day. This has re-awakened my creativity which I thought was long gone. Thank you Malini, and the other 6 beautiful people in the class, for bringing it back into the light.

Malini's Painting for Beginners workshop was everything I had wished for and more. Her studio is nestled in a peaceful forest, providing such a calm & inspiring atmosphere to be fully immersed in nature and art. Being a complete beginner (I'd never held a brush before), I was very nervous. But with such charm and warm, Malini helped settle all my worries.. Her detailed step-by-step instructions are easy to understand and follow, yet leave much room for individual imagination and creative freedom. I especially love the fact that Malini not only taught us the techniques but also the philosophy behind arts through her own personal life stories.... very heartfelt and inspiring at the same time. The one-day workshop I spent at Malini's class was like fresh air in my chaotic life. It has left me feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, revigorated, and inspired to explore my own creativity. Thank you, Malini for everything. You are an inspiration. I can't recommend this class high enough!
