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!

Blooms Freestyle Paintings & w/shop dates


CREATE 5 paintings 
in 3 days & loosen up in my Blooms Freestyle Limited Edition Workshop

(plus other upcoming workshop dates)

Do you struggle to be bold with colour?
Are you bogged in detail?

Do paintings take you so long you’ve forgoten why you started it?

Do you wish your art felt fluid and free to express your ideas 
as quickly as you have them?

Then no matter what stage you are at, enjoy my LIMITED EDITION Blooms Freestyle Workshop and create colourful free style paintings like this;

Penny Macklin from Geelong produced this gorgeous hen for her large painting
and enjoyed the bold and new ways to apply the paint for a free style effect.


I’ve popped this in the schedule as a once off for students to unshackle their uptight painting ways and embrace a free style with loads of different accesses and techniques, and how to get your acrylics to look luscious like oils!

Don’t worry, I still have my very popular classic Blooms Painting Workshop available with the beautiful flowers learning the no fail Blooms Painting Method that has helped so many achieve their creative dreams. 

In fact whilst Melbourne is almost booked out for Blooms in January I have a few spots left for Sydney Dec 18-21. 

You can still join me and get 2018 off to a great start.
But back to Blooms Freestyle.

Here I am with a sample of  painting with texture.
Everyone produced a great piece from this exercise where I teach you how to use a palette knife and get your acrylics looking like oils as just one of the tips I share!
I’ve loved every minute of it.
It’s taken me outside of my usual world into 
a completely different world.
Jac has been incredibly generous with her expertise, 
knowledge & help. I’ve learned a lot.
I’ve been so happy to be here!  I’m really glad I tried it.

Kerry, Brisbane

You won’t want to miss out!
I am only doing a few workshops of the Freestyle so grab your seat in Melbourne or Sydney in January!
This workshop isn't coming back. I have other things scheduled for 2018.

The crazy wonderful thing about my Blooms Freestyle Painting Workshop is we paint 5 paintings in three days, ( 4 small and 1 large) and we aren’t even rushing to do it!




Student warm up exercise painting using the Blooms Freestyle painting method by Jade Fisher. Jade wasn't sure if she was going to 'get' the process, but by the time she finished this painting she had it nailed.
We create 4 small paintings and 1 large.
The pace is enjoyable and leisurely, allowing plenty of time                    for review on day 3! The techniques I demo unveil to you what is possible.
Let me show you all the steps for several methods that                                                  accelerate you to fabulous without fuss!
You won’t believe some of the tools we use to paint with that get amazing effects! I share my experience of 30 years so you get it quickly and demonstrate it to yourself in your own samples and paintings.

Here are some comments and paintings from the group I just had over the last three days.
 
Teacher demo in progress with a no fail Blooms Freestyle technique

I thought I would be in this place
in a year from now, not this weekend!
Jade Fisher

Jade loved the Blooms Freestyle method so much she managed to get two large paintings
and 3 small ones out in the 3 days we spent together





I’ve loved it
I will certainly go home and put it into practice.
I’m going away with new ideas.
Learning the impasto was new and great.

Marcella Ashcroft, Adelaide, SA


Kerry from Brisbane created this fun experimental piece on board

Ann from the Clare Valley created this beautiful piece with impasto and gold leaf.
Its the largest piece she has done. Now she has something to enter into an art prize!

I’ve added so many new tools and processes.
I have never worked this large before. It’s exciting!
It’s taught me to be bold with the colour!

Ann Foster, Clare Valley, SA



Lots to learn! All good!

E.B., Adelaide





I have got so much confidence from this course

I am answering both phones at the moment as home.

Why learn from me?

It's important to know who's teaching you because its an investment in your self, your experience bank 
& your time

I’ve dedicated my life to teaching art and SHARING  ALL OF MY PAINTING SECRETS to make you the best painter you can be quickly. Unlike other artists who teach  AND paint,  
 who don’t want you to paint like them so they can't & won't share everything with you.

I 've been a successful selling artist for 2 decades  supporting my own family as a single mum in my own private practice with sales nationally and internationally, and many VIP opportunities before choosing to teach full time. 
As opposed to someone who can't make ends meet with their paintings so they choose to teach others. 
Ask yourself what do they have to teach you?
I teach you how to be successful with your art and get great results.

I have created a system of painting not available anywhere else that takes the pain out of painting, and accelerates your painting development and results. It’s called the Jacqueline Coates Blooms Painting Method®. It's unique and proven.

As an experienced artist of 30 years of painting, with a solid knowledge bank with solutions to every painting issue that can come up, I am dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.

My mission in life is to continue to open the doors  to inspiration and painting for newbie painters and those in need of a creative reboot.                                          Your excellent results are my joy.

In my workshops you get results you will love and be proud of, not half baked unfinished unresolved work. I use quality materials all supplied.

I discovered that I love teaching others and sharing my knowledge and building on the helpful method I have developed, with tips and useful information.
You are my artwork! You get to benefit!

Art school doesn’t teach you how to handle the paint which directly affects the results you get on the canvas.
I am the only person showing you how to manage your paint to get the outcomes you want. This gives you confidence to do more!

I have taught thousands of students over the years, and mentored and launched many amazing artists to enjoy the successes they now enjoy, as practising earning artists, all done with great pleasure and the knowledge I have done a great and generous job. I am happy to do the same for you. 

You can go to a different workshop and pay less, but you won't get the great results because noone else is teaching what I teach - a reliable system for painting.  Save time and save money and take home beautiful paintings for show for it.

Enjoy inspirational creative 'me' time for yourself.
