Painting Sessions

[PLEASE NOTE: these sessions are held in abeyance for the time being due to personal circumstance.

Feel free to sign up for future possibilities]


Artists  – do you feel your painting gets a little too tight at times – and you long to loosen up?

If so, then these sessions are designed for you.

 Whether you’ve been painting a short while or for many years, and even if you think have no skills whatsoever you are bound to find inspiration.

The sessions, designed by myself, are essentially about PAINT. They will emphasise how to make paint work for you – rather than you having to work for paint, thus freeing you up to explore the paint itself – as well as the subject under consideration.

These are just a few of the specifics we’ll be (dis)covering:

  • Why do you want freedom?
  • How do you define freedom? What does it mean to you?
  • How freedom in paint will benefit you.
  • Expanding your relationship with materials.
  • How to let go of preciousness (embracing destruction!)
  • Labour vrs Freedom.
  • Ways to start afresh.
  • Breaking ingrained patterns.
  • Establishing style.
  • Revitalising tired work.

But much more than this . . . Painting is only a reflection of life. And the way you might paint is a reflection of the way you live. This is because essentially both aspects are a reflection of you as a person. In these sessions you will get to know that person better – as well as interacting with others and having a fun time.

If you already paint, you’ll need to bring your own equipment, (whatever your chosen medium),  including easel and stool, if you use these. There will be a few chairs available also. If you haven’t yet painted – then I have everything you need to start.
