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.

NEXT BLOOMS PAINTING WORKSHOPS DATES (as listed below)

THE ONLY THING STOPPING YOUR CREATIVITY
COULD BE YOU!

Blooms students in Los Angeles  at the DOWNTOWN ROOM studio enjoying a moment October 2017;
Susan McG from Pasadena, Marlene from Detroit and Jessica from Chicago 

It’s been a cracking month or so with Blooms Painting Workshops in Los Angeles, Perth and Brisbane. People ask me how I manage such a schedule. 
The answer is, I LOVE IT! And I love seeing the results people get. Like newbie painter Angela from country WA, who did the Perth workshop this month....


I get to rest inbetween and hang out with my kids as I am doing now, and on my weekend off this weekend I have invited the ladies from my Make Money From Art Program to paint alongside me at Salon Rouge Gallery and enjoy some hang out time painting together.  Just for fun! There could be some bubbles involved!

Downtown LA where I held the first US Blooms Workshop

Painting for me is not work it's a passion.

In these recent workshops  and in fact all year I’ve met awesome people in awesome places and seen some amazing paintings evolve out of my Blooms Painting Workshops from people often with little or no experience whatsoever who have hankered to do my workshop for some time.





Susan McG from Pasadena gives the blooms 2 Day workshop in Los Angeles the thumbs up. As a newbie painter she was thrilled to learn she could paint. The other ladies in the group were equally successful. Hello Karen, Marlene and Jessica!

I am grateful for all of these people who have come into contact and sparkled through their creativity. I love their stories and I love seeing their victories over their fears as they bust through and create the paintings they are proud of. 

What about Josh's amazing painting, one of two he did in the recent 4 day Brisbane workshop?


Many students stalk me online for years before coming to a workshop

Often by their own confessions some have stalked me online for some time before coming to a workshop! So funny! I just love that confession. It’s a common one and it makes me chuckle. How many more of you are hiding out? How long do you want me to be teaching for before you will hand yourself in? I am 54 now. You might like to get yourself to a workshop!

Donna is a store manager in her day job and new to painting. She uncovered a talent for painting at the Blooms Painting Workshops Perth in November. So great to see!



The results of the workshops have been genuinely shockingly fantastic. I can guarantee I have some excellent workshops available for December and January.

USUALLY THE PERSON STANDING IN THE WAY OF YOU AND YOUR CREATIVITY IS YOU

Why not give yourself permission to come along?
Being on the cusp of 2018 get your creative house in order!
Make painting the everyday normal for you!



Despite the different locations of my Blooms workshops, there was a common theme amongst students

Most of these students have known about my workshops for ages and had it on the bucket list.  Even for as long as five years.

They were RELIEVED to hand themselves over for the Blooms Painting experience despite their fears and finally see what it was all about to learn to be able to paint.
Often they were waiting for the perfect time. That could be because they were busy with family, partners, work or health….. until now. Now they could put themselves first and they were thankful I am still teaching so they could come along.

Elaine from central Queensland shares what she liked about the Blooms Painting Workshop in November in Brisbane



Sometimes it’s wondering if they should spend that money on themselves, and if it will be worth it. Not only the question of will Jacqueline Coates be worth it but will it be worth spending that on themselves with no proven artistic talent, just the desire to paint. Will it be a waste or will it be a breakthrough? Judge for yourselves the results! Why die wondering?! 

Make a decision either way because sitting on the fence post, nothing much happens!

At a Blooms Painting Workshop I show you how to handle the paint, the brush, and how to get your paint to do what you want it to do, to get the results you want.
I have developed a system of painting that cuts out years of wasted time so you save a lot of time and pain and wasted efforts when you show up to a Blooms Painting Workshop.





That saves you a lot of money and gets your confidence up when you walk away with beautiful results you are proud to hang on your wall and show to friends.
It’s so typical of good women that they put themselves after everyone else’s needs before they will give to themselves. When will you give to yourself?



Georgia from Adelaide loves painting but had been having issues with paintings taking a long time to do. Blooms helped her bust out of the rut and she is now off and running with loads of new techniques.

WARNING;
Putting yourself first occasionally can make you happy!

The joy I noticed that flowed from showing up to pursue their dreams and to get the results they came for was very moving. It’s what makes my job doing what I do complete. I know it frees up students to pursue their painting passions. They find that thing that is for them.

I have spoken with Liz Byers this week, from the recent Sydney workshop and since the workshop she tells me she hasn’t stopped painting. She simply can’t enough of it! 

She tells me;

‘I have made a studio in the garage and I go there between 9-12 to paint. I have to put the timer on because otherwise I don’t come out of there! It’s so absorbing and I love it!
Your workshop is the most invigorating thing I have ever done! I loved every minute of it’

Now if that doesn’t sound like a creative reboot and a repurposing in life I don’t know what is! I could hear the thrill in her voice and the paintings look great after the workshop. Hubby completes supports her passions too!

A workshop can change lives. Students are free to pursue what they want to paint after a workshop. Some go it alone and others jump on board for some of my painting programs. In case you are wondering if the results only happen for a few, here are the shots from a room of paintings in Perth including mine and the assistants making a total of 14 paintings.








It takes courage to paint when you aren’t sure what the outcome will be. Once you are there at the workshop youa re guided through a system of painting. The students from frustrated art teachers to those who have been following my progress online, to total newbies, had the courage to bust through their concerns and show up and make the change. ALL finished with a lot of new skills and the confidence to go and do more.

My painting workshop is not like other art workshops. I’ve dedicated my life to teaching. I am not competing with my students. My students go on to do more amazing things than me because they have the freedom to paint and pursue their painting after tuition with me and I couldn’t be more proud. I am told I am a generous teacher but you already know that if you have stalked me well. And I hope you have.

Lois from Queensland is a newbie painter and more used to quilting. She was thrilled with her paintings and the fact she could achieve such a great result in a short time compared to quilting or anything else she has done.


So are you going to take action or remain a have-not? Is 2018 going to be enhanced by your artistic skills? Are you going to bloom and grow with your paintings? Are you going to discover the joys of playing with colour and making stunning combinations of colour on your canvases? Or are you going to stay stuck? 

Here’s where you can find me in person to unlock painting for you.

There are two choices of Blooms art classes on the go for December and January.  I am about this week and next week if you want to call me to book in and ask any questions. To book in I require a deposit and the balance 4 weeks beforehand.

The Limited Edition Blooms Freestyle Painting Workshop

Recently I introduced a stunning new workshop, the Blooms Freestyle Painting Workshop which is ideal for those of you who want to loosen up and feel free in your painting practice. But I won’t be doing it forever. It’s a fun way to get past your uptight ways of working and your tendency to hold on to dear life to one detail at a time. My group who did this workshop is  Melbourne in August LOVED it!

In three days you will enjoy some warm up exercises that will result in a series of paintings you can keep followed by a 1 m square painting, your main piece, that will be fun and quick to produce with lots of texture, spontaneity and form. FREE YOURSELF UP! Here are the dates and venues where you can participate in this.





It’s available for a short time only. I will be running it ONLY to the dates listed here. Don’t ring me after these dates and ask for it as it won’t be on offer! Seize the day and hand yourself in for a massive creative reboot you will love. FREE YOURSELF UP!
