Course Focus: Intuitive Painting and Collage Making

Delve into the world of creative expression with our popular course centered around intuitive painting and collage making. The emphasis here is on having fun, letting go, and relishing the artistic process rather than fixating on the final outcome of your painting. Get ready to play with paint, allowing your intuition to guide the brush and connecting with your creative side.

This course is designed for everyone, regardless of prior painting experience. If you've painted before, leave rules and techniques at home; this is about embracing creative freedom with paint and markers.

No need to worry about bringing materials – just come with an apron and a positive attitude ready to paint and explore.

As we create 2 or 3 paintings, you'll be pleasantly surprised by what unfolds. Afterward, we'll cut the paintings and assemble the pieces into a captivating collage, akin to the process of making a mosaic.

Whether working on boards or paper, your finished piece will be ready to frame when you're satisfied with the results – and I guarantee you will be.

For a glimpse into the class atmosphere, visit my website for images and videos that capture the creative spirit.

Collage making, much like mosaic creation, is likely to become addictive, but fear not – a follow-up course is already in the works.

I am eagerly anticipating the joy of seeing you immersed in the playful exploration of paint and the exciting process of choosing the best elements for your collage.

About the Mosaic Workshops

Mosaic materials and tools are all included in the price.

We will delve into various distinctive mosaic styles, uniquely designed and explored by me. 

During the course, we will craft a mixed-media mosaic, incorporating beads and tesserae onto our own paintings.

This mosaic workshop caters to both beginners in mosaic or beadwork and more advanced students, allowing everyone to progress at their own pace according to their mosaic experience.

For those interested, there's also the option to incorporate African beadwork into your mosaic. ( More info in the PDF) 

For the upcoming Mosaic Retreat 2024 , we may explore an additional different topic or style id time allows..

There will be an option to choose from an abstract composition selection, that I will specify at a later stage in the PDF. 

For additional details about what we will create , please feel free to request the PDF by reaching out to me via email at
