2 Fantastic Afternoons





Painting is part of our instinct to communicate and enables an expression of emotion that can’t be felt through just words themselves. Painting also happens to be fantastic for relieving stress, enhancing creativity, developing problem-solving skills AND for making something beautiful! 

No matter what your creative ability MANscape is a liberating experience perfect for all levels. This spirit centered and educational workshop offers a toolbox of techniques guaranteed to energize your life on and off the canvas. 

Everyone needs a creative outlet to express themselves!

It is easy to forget – with all of the responsibilities in life – that people need some ‘me time’. Studies show the direct connection between painting and a reduction of stress levels, through

  • Self-care by taking part in something purely for the benefit or your own well-being that makes you feel more well-balanced

  • Distraction from the day-today thoughts during the painting session that enables relaxation and a clearer line of thought and perspective

  • Relaxing into that beautiful and positive state of mind, known as the BEING IN THE  FLOW when you are totally immersed in the activity of painting


Located in a working artist’s studio nestled in the vibrant inner city suburb of  Hawthorn, Melbourne, join a limited group of 7 and over 2 glorious afternoons, fill your inner tank with creativity, great company and freedom to express yourself artistically while you work on a BIG beautiful take-home HERO painting that will become the heartbeat of your home. 

Working from carefully composed landscape studies and with a proven method that builds the painting in a loose, immediate and relaxed style, we use the versatility of acrylics and ANY implement that can make a mark (including fingers), from brushes to rollers in a broad colour palette so you will feel confident to respond in your own unique way.

You're in safe hands.....

Formally trained in painting, printmaking, adult education and psycho-spirituality, Shani Alexander believes colour revives the spirit! Rather than teach you ‘how to paint’ Shani weaves her unique skill set into the design of her workshops to offer you a painting experience that has you get a whole lot more than you expected than just your beautiful HERO painting.

Expressing yourself through painting will elevate your life

You will be fully immersed in colour, food, music and company and will enjoy the freedom to loosen up, soak up the energy of a working artist's studio, embrace colour and also get to know what ignites your artistic soul. And as always in our studio, we have the gentle presence of Florence, our working dog!

Formally trained in art, entrepreneurship, adult education and psycho-spirituality, Shani Alexander is known for her joie de vivre and paints with a boldness that flaunts her joy of living, grabbing life by both hands in celebration. It wasn't always this way for Shani, who was a grand finalist in the 2010 Entrepreneurship Challenge for a national company that she walked away from after her brother died. Her natural grieving allowed her to go inside and rethink the direction of her life and what emerged was a transformational change to workplace chaplaincy, a tree change and returning to her first love, painting.  She sees them all powerfully linked as working alongside suffering has put into focus the gift of life and how vibrant and alive everything is.  Her philosophy is to capture life because she understands the human spirit and the healing power of her message is that colour can help you rise above the ordinary.  

Shani studied painting and printmaking at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and the themes of spirituality, colour and expressionism are woven into the details of her designs which she often re-works to curate strongly together as a complimentary story. She has participated in numerous shows and works and practices from her studio where the Yarra Valley meets the city of Melbourne.
