Follow Your Creative Dreams
Delight in the process of painting whilst exploring your creative energy and immersing yourself in the sensory expression of self. I offer a variety of 2 Day Creative Art Workshops available from traditional to abstract styles of painting. Explore painting in acrylics, mixed medium or oils.
My workshops are designed to be loads of fun, help build your creative confidence and enable you to take home a beautiful work of art to hang on your wall. Whatever workshop you choose you will get plenty of attention and instruction, and be guided through the process of creating your own fabulous piece of art. In many cases your paints, brushes and equipment will be supplied if you are undertaking a 2 or 3 hour class, however in my one and two day workshops require you to bring some or all of your own equipment and/or canvas. Material lists will be supplied for each workshop. Minimum age requirement 14+ years of age.
Developing artistic skills, embracing new challenges and being involved in the whole creative process enables students to problem solve, expand their skills and develop new techniques, resulting in improved self confidence for each participant regardless of age or experience. Regardless of whether you are a beginner, hobby artist or experienced painter you will find at least one of my creative art workshops which will have you learning new paintings skills and techniques. Beginners are warmly welcomed.

TREAT YOURSELF TO A CREATIVE WEEKEND ON THE SAPPHIRE COAST
I invite you to come to the beautiful Sapphire Coast, NSW. Yes, our beaches are clean and white, the water is the colour of sapphires and our climate the most temperate in Australia. Take a break and immerse yourself in your artistic endeavours whilst still making time out to visit wineries, local markets, try our delicious oysters, stroll on our sandy beaches or even take a dive into the pristine waters. Perhaps you’d like to put your own small group of art lovers together and design a program that best fits your needs. I’m happy to discuss all your requirements and provide an exciting step-by-step program that will see you taking home your own fabulous art.
Please contact me if you’d like to have me to tutor your art group at your location or you’d like to organise your own private group of friends to come to the coast for a day or two of creative painting.
