About START WITH ART

Wouldn’t it be great if approached our days with Clarity and Calm? If we had a blueprint for our journey forward instead of kind of going from one challenge to the next, coming up occasionally for air? If we didn’t keep making goals that we ultimately abandoned, but set intentions that gently guided us through the inevitable twists and turns stretching out before us?

In this workshop, we make art that directs us to look forward to the future with hope and anticipation, instead of a slight unease at the uncertainty it brings. We combine creativity and purposefulness, and make art that reminds us of each of our unique and amazing qualities!

** Note: This is a 2 day workshop over Sat/Sun, from 9.30 to 5.30 daily. Not a sleepover :) And there are no prerequisites. You are all welcome!

“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

I did the 2 day Start with Art weekend workshop in hopes of gaining my creativite spark back and I can certainly tell you it's worked! I have more of an understanding of myself when I create art, why I choose certain colours and effects. Malini is an amazing teacher and beautiful soul. She makes you feel at ease and helps you go with the flow with your art. I loved being around the other students which is a big thing for me to say and I enjoy my own company and am an introvert. I recommend her classes for anyone, especially if you're unsure about doing art. Thank you Malini :)

Malini’s courses are always a delight. I’ve done them ALL, over a period of 9 years and I keep coming back. She creates a beautiful container of joy, creative energy and safety, where each member of the group feels seen and supported - regardless of skill level or previous experience. Her teaching comes directly from the heart, with authenticity and deep experience, in both life and art.

Mal is an extremely talented, kind hearted artist. She gives gentle guidance if you ever feel stuck or unsure. I’m a complete beginner and having done her art class has opened my eyes to many different ways of doing art and looking at art. Highly recommend! She also has a dog which is a bonus 😍 definitely a fantastic way to start the year
