Latest Blooms Painting Workshop Dates 2018


        Learn to paint         in 2 days!
Then enjoy your stunning results at leisure!

                 
                 Liz from Tassie shares about her Blooms Workshop experience 

Let me show you my no fail Blooms Painting Method and how to unlock your creativity! Don’t delay your dreams any longer

Scared of making a mess?
Worried what others might think?
Fantasising you will be the only one in the class who can’t do it?

Don’t worry! Every student goes home with great work every time even if they have never painted before.

I was in that panicky place once myself. I was so worried about making a mark on the canvas I could hardly breathe! That’s why I have come up with a compassionate approach to painting that helps you build your paintings step by step in a way that is manageable and enjoyable, ensuring great outcomes you will feel proud of.


I will teach you;
·      How to handle the paint from blending to building up the colour

·      How to create a strong foundation for your painting

·      How to see what needs correcting and making your decisions as you bring your painting to a beautiful finale

·      How to draw up your canvas even if you can’t draw

·      My steps to polish your work so it looks like its been done by a pro!

·      To have confidence in yourself and your art ability

·      How to handle all the amazing attention that you will get from creating luscious stunning work others will want

·      How to do it all again when you get home so you can go on to paint more stunning masterpieces


Liz  shared how she failed art school decades ago and it sapped her confidence. It's not surprising because art schools are notorious for not teaching people how to paint!!!!!
So when Liz stepped through the doors of Salon Rouge Gallery for my Blooms Painting workshop in Kapunda two weeks ago she was excited to be finally giving her painting desires the opportunity she knew she deserved. She did a great job and immersed herself.  Now she knows that she can paint and it’s not an issue at all. She is free to experience the joy that painting brings and inspire others with her paintings.
How long will you wait to give yourself the chance to explore your artistic side and take home a stunning painting?

New workshop dates & Blooming Fabulous Student results!

Reboot your creative spark with new workshop dates! 
Not sure who had more fun. The students or me!
Great fun and lots of beautiful work produced!

It’s been an amazing month or so of workshops in Sydney and Melbourne. Every student went home with a brilliant painting or several paintings, depending on the workshop, and renewed energy and enthusiasm for their creativity and a renewed belief in their self.

Marg C from Melbourne learned blooms and is a wonderful painter. I hadn't seen Marg for a couple of years .
Due to a few things that came along in life, Marg was unable to get to the easel for a bit. It can happen. It happened to me once! She wanted a creative reboot after an absence from painting.
Marg painted these stunning hay bales and played with a new colour palette.

I met some wonderful people and had a ball as I coaxed my students into their best possible artistic selves with easy to understand guidance and tips, and great information that accelerated their results. No wonder the doubters became believers as they glazed their finished paintings with pride and confidence!

Alan Powell  from Mornington just retired from his profession and his wife thought
it would be a good idea if learned to paint. He had never painted before!
Look what he created! This is one of two stunners he painted.

Yes, I teach painting but I know that its mostly about changing your mind about what you can do  in the time you are with me. 
GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO CHANGE YOUR MIND!

Anna Boxtel was after a painting style and approach to free up her painting and express herself with the paint and tools
and have fun with it yet produce a painting series she loves. This is one of two large pieces she painted along with a series of smaller pieces at the Melbourne Freestyle Workshop.


French Villa painting created by one of my students, Kaye Ward at the Sydney Freestyle.
 I'd be happy to live with this painting myself!

Detail of one of the paintings from the Freestyle class.


Jane Jordan looking pretty chuffed she had found a  way to
translate her gorgeous photos from China thanks to unlocking some new painting
approaches in the Blooms freestyle. So much gorgeous colour.


Luisa  doing a great job in Sydney of her orchids which she dusted with copper. Divine!



Great to see Judy Button at the Melbourne Freestyle.
Judy was up for expanding her painting tools and techniques.
Judy learned to paint with the Blooms Painting Method and even had training to teach it.
She sold her first painting for more than $5,000. Amazing!


Sal de Costanzo made this luscious painting in Sydney then came to Melbourne for Blooms

My creative vision of what is possible for you is so much more generous than your own usually  because of the inner critic that keeps you small and most of the time you don't realise it, and that's why everyone finishes in such a great place and has the space to go and be freed up creatively and produce. I LOVE my job!!!


Arty women love to meet other arty women!
So many new friendships are made as we get to know each other as we paint.
 The results have been so amazing. I have buffed and honed my Blooms painting method I originated over 20 years ago. Now we can do in 4 days what we used to do in a 6 days workshop. So I celebrated with a limited edition of Blooming Fabulous T-shirts for my students.


Julliett sorted out her painting p's and q's in
Sydney to create these stunning paintings.
 Now it’s time to review and reset for the year, so not only will I share some of the stunning results here, I will share the new Blooms painting workshop dates here and in my next blog I will share about my new Blooms Masterclass Program you can enjoy online.  

Marley was so happy with her paintings and the blooms Painting Method
she is continuing her training  online with a Blooms course
 I have introduced a brand new online course over the Christmas break and have been already enrolling students to a maximum of 20 places intake and I still have some places left for my brand new Blooms Masterclass.
Christine did a great job of her two painting
in the 4 day blooms Painting Workshop


Luisa is a successful business woman by day and loved her time
exploring another part of her self at the Blooms
Painting Workshop. 

Delightful Annmarie with her paintings at the Sydney Blooms in December

More good news! Some of you may have seen the article by journalist Christine McCabe in last weekends The Weekend Australian newspaper. Christine wrote in glowing terms about my French Art School Tour in a double page spread as she actually was a guest in September 2017. 


Everyone who has been on my tour already knew how much fun and how inspirational the experience is and now the rest of Australia gets to find out too! I couldn't be more proud. I will include a copy of that in my next blog in case you missed it. Catch it before it becomes a fish and chip wrapper!

Having taught at least 60 fabulous individuals over the last two months in person, treating each person as the work of art they are, I can safely say that the most important thing is to allow yourself to trust and to give yourself permission to try. 

Once you get yourself to the workshop you are in the best of hands, and through my tried and true Blooms Painting Method, a process so unique that it is trademarked, you will learn the steps you need to create stunning work to make a difference to your own artwork and art practice. 
My puppy Claude hasn't had any art lessons but thinks he's ready for it.
Here he is running off with my paint brush

So congrats to all the brave peeps who showed up to workshops and confessed they had had it on their bucket list for at least 4 years and finally cracked themselves open to find they could in fact paint like stars.

I have managed to find two more days to come back to Melbourne as lots of you have been asking. See below.

All you need to do is get yourself to a Blooms Painting Workshop and I will show you how to create a brilliant structure that will get you painting and being productive as a logical outcome.  Just like these delightful students I am sharing with you now.


Make a date 
to reboot your creativity!
