ONE DAY ABSTRACT PAINTING WORKSHOP PAINTING FROM THE HEART

This one day workshop is for anyone who wants to learn how to paint abstract artwork with freedom and confidence. It’s for total beginners or those who are more experienced, who want to experiment with abstraction and painting fast and free.

I'll take you from the safety of working on printed newspaper, with children’s paints, to experimenting working on canvas with acrylics. Step by step I'll help you build your confidence. Ideally, you will leave with the tools to paint boldly and start creating your own abstract works from the heart.  

 

All materials provided, come and escape the busy world for the day and explore colour and self expression.

I supply home made cake and refreshments, please bring your own packed lunch to enjoy in the garden with any luck weather permitting.

ARTISTIC ALCHEMY: PAINTING YOUR DIVINE SELF

NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED.
THIS IS NOT A WORKSHOP WHERE YOU ARE EXPECTED TO PAINT PERFECT PORTRAITS/PAINTINGS.
THE OPPOSITE IS REQUIRED.
YOU WILL BE GUIDED THROUGHOUT.

Dive into a day of magical creativity with my " Artistic Alchemy: Painting Your Divine Self " workshop, a playful and profound adventure that blends spirituality with the joy of painting. It’s a space where you're invited to dance with your divine feminine or masculine essence, using brushes and colours as your partners. Here, the focus is on the head, but it's not about getting it just right—it's about expressing the vibrant deity that lives within you, in all its glorious imperfection.

Whether you're drawn to create something whimsical, wild, vivid, or intricate, this workshop encourages you to let go and get messy. Embrace the chaos! You'll have a buffet of artistic options, including playing with paint, collage materials and simple techniques for bringing facial features to life. It's all about rapid, judgement-free creation, letting your intuition lead the way.

But this goes beyond a simple art class; it's an opportunity to explore what makes you unique. With every stroke of paint, you'll be peeling back layers to reveal and rejoice in the god or goddess that you are. Through calming meditations, a talk on divine archetypes, and the liberating act of painting, I offer a haven for your creativity and soulful exploration. Join me to forge a powerful connection with your inner beauty and power, painting your version of the divine into existence and embarking on a path of self-discovery and celestial celebration.

SOUL PORTRAITS - EXPLORING THE ART OF YOU

WORKSHOP AT SUSSEX PRAIRIE GARDEN

NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED.
THIS IS NOT A WORKSHOP WHERE YOU ARE EXPECTED TO PAINT PERFECT PORTRAITS/PAINTINGS. THE OPPOSITE IS REQUIRED. YOU WILL BE GUIDED THROUGHOUT.

Step into a workshop where diving into your inner world becomes an exciting journey of self-discovery through art. Drawing inspiration from the intriguing concept of the shadow self by Carl Jung, we turn introspection into an exciting creative process. With a focus on the head as our canvas, I encourage you to unleash your subconscious in bold, intuitive strokes.

This isn't about creating masterpieces but about letting loose on paper to capture the wild, whimsical, or mysterious sides of yourself that usually stay hidden. Whether your brush brings to life abstract shapes, a riot of colours, or intricate designs, every piece is a step closer to embracing your full self.

Forget about perfection; it's all about play here. Get free with the paint or experiment with collage, play with facial features in fun, easy ways, and let your imagination run wild in a judgment-free zone.

This is your chance to laugh, explore, and maybe even surprise yourself. It's a celebration of all the quirky, shadowy corners of your psyche, brought into the light through art. Join us for a day of creativity, self-exploration, and, most importantly, fun, as we paint our way through the shadows to discover the vibrant spectrum of our inner selves.

GELLI PRINTING WORKSHOP

A SIMPLE BUT STUNNING TECHNIQUE

AT ART & SOUL

NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED

Gelli printing introduces a modern approach to monoprinting without the need for a press, thanks to the development of a mineral-based, reusable, soft print plate. This technique allows for the creation of unique prints that can vary from vibrant to understated, depending on your preference. The pliable and responsive surface of the plate makes it easy to incorporate detailed textures, such as those from plants or textiles and even magazines into your artwork. 

 

During the workshop, you'll be presented with a variety of examples showcasing the diverse potential of Gelli plate printing before beginning your own creative journey. Comprehensive demonstrations will ensure you gain the confidence to create numerous prints on your own in this experimental setting. Support will be available whenever necessary, ensuring you acquire the skills to pursue this enjoyable printing method at home should you wish to.

 

All materials provided and there will be home-made cake and refreshments. 6 places only!

COST £65   9.30 - 1.30 PM
