Learn to paint in one day

The Collie Art Gallery is excited to be able to offer Malini Parker’s one-day intensive Painting for Beginners training course on Sunday, 17 May 2015.

This is a one-day intensive painting class, where you learn Malini’s unique seven step process to create beautiful, textured abstract paintings from scratch – even if you haven’t painted since you were at school.

The day is packed with content, it is insanely busy, but fun! You will be guided along one of the many pathways to creating art, and surprise yourself at just how much you learn in just one day.

Working with acrylics paints, texture and mediums, Malini will personally guide you, step-by-step, through the very same process that she uses in her own art. The course starts with absolute basics and progresses steadily to using texture and colour, making effective compositions, and how to finish paintings. Each and every step is demonstrated in detail.

Have you suspected there’s more to making art than just learning techniques? You’re right! During this special workshop, Malini will share those ‘secrets’ too.

By the end of the workshop you will have four unique and beautiful paintings to take home. All that anxiety dissolved. And just think how you will feel when your friends and family say,“Wow! You did that?” Afterwards, you can go home and apply what you learned, make more art and continue to surprise your loved ones.

Warning: If you are looking for one of those art classes where you are left alone to paint for hours, making perfect, tidy, realistic compositions, then this course would not be for you. Painting for Beginners is a grungy, texture-y, painty, messy, and oh-so-much-fun intensive art class where Malini offers her hands on, right-by-your-side, ask-her-anything, heartfelt approach. You have no spare time to waste on worrying, and no, you don’t have to be able to ‘draw a straight line’.

Malini does all of the preparation work for your paintings and brings all the supplies you’ll need – all you need to do is bring yourself. And there is no need to worry that you’ll forget the details – all that is covered in the comprehensive folder of notes provided.

Malini travels all over Australia, delivering her unique workshop to sell-out rooms in capital cities and country towns.
