ABOUT 

WORKSHOP INTENTION:

Working on a 90 x 90cm canvas, this 6-hour intensive workshop will guide you through the process of moving past fears and self-doubt into activating a spirit of playfulness and risk-taking to create a resolved, abstract painting.

The intention behind the workshop is to:

  1. Experience working on a larger scale and create an abstract work.
  2. Delve into your internal landscape and tap into your authentic expression through intuitive abstraction
  3. Explore and experiment with some of Amica’s signature painting techniques.

WALK AWAY WITH:

  • 6 hrs of facilitated studio time, including plenty of one-on-one time.
  • An assortment of brushes, paints and materials, everything you need to create a masterpiece.
  • A light, gourmet lunch
  • Tea and coffee, and filtered water
  • Live Demonstration.
  • A collection of creative starts (practice paintings) and technical guides to take into your own practice
      • If you can (not essential but highly recommended) – please bring a ‘heat gun tool’ preferably or at least a hairdryer, this would be wonderful for you explore a technique I use where we create ‘tidelines’.

    I haven’t painted before, is this class for me?

    Yes! This class is for anyone who wants to loosen up, become bolder and explore their creativity in a new intuitive way. The process is very forgiving and no prior painting experience is necessary., although a basic understanding of colour and design principles is highly recommended.

    I’m already a professional artist, is this class for me?

    Yes, even if you have been painting for years, this class will bring a fresh approach, new techniques and a new way of looking at painting from a place of intuition, freedom, and joy.

    How do I know if this course is for me?

    This course is for you if you want to discover a unique approach to painting, which can translate into all areas of your life: you want to let go, be bold and allow your paintings to unfold naturally in their own time: you are ready to move through fear and embrace the unknown.
