The Colourful and Playful World of Pastels
Mix and overlay the colours of Nature, building up tones of light, and darker shades to create perspective, while allowing the forms and images to appear on the page before you. Chalk pastels
Light and Darkness, Creating a Charcoal Atmosphere
Working with our hands to create a soft, calm atmosphere before building up tones of light and darkness in soft, medium, strong, and central sources of light.
This process helps us to observe, and trains the eyes to see the interplay of shadow and light in the world of Nature, thereby enhancing our artistic experience of the world around us.
Breathing the Rainbow Colours with Watercolours
Painting the colours of the rainbow in watercolour creates a myriad of tones, and opportunities to express your imagination beyond what you think you can and can’t do. These simple techniques aim to relax our breathing, and allow our soul forces to open to new ways of being; as well as bringing a calm and meditative influence into your daily life.
$105 for 3 classes or $40 per class casual rate. 50% deposit required to secure your place with the balance paid on the 2nd class.
Tea and coffee provided. Classes limited to 5 people for individual attention. Children over the age of 12 years also welcome.

Visionboard Workshops: 9.30am till 4pm by request
Creating a collage from cut out magazine images and words of your dreams, hopes, and wishes for the year ahead gives a powerful focus, setting your intentions with purpose and clarity. This can be centered around your chosen Inner Child Card, giving intuitive guidence and uncovering your hopes and wishes for the year ahead.
The creation of this Visionboard will allow you to reflect upon these intentions throughout the year, and recognise how they have manifested in your daily life.
Please bring a large sheet of light cardboard, scissors, a glue stick, interesting magazines and articles, something for a shared lunch.
These workshops can be organised at your place or mine anytime throughout the year. Exchange: $45 per person, or group concession available.
