Starting with a simple meditation to bring you back to the essence of who you are, this Half Day Abstract Painting class will provide you with the opportunity to open to your natural energy and create your own abstract works.

You will learn painting techniques to help you on your way - washes, layers, application with different tools, and fast and slow methods of abstract painting. There will be a simple meditation at the start of the class to help open the space where each person will find their own preference and style.

No previous experience is required. It is a relaxed and fun class where there are no rules. Just enjoy opening to your natural self to create and be with one another from this space.

Half Day Class runs 10am to 1pm (with morning tea included). Art materials are included.

20yr+ experience in art, 3yr+ in meditation


For over the past 20 years I have been a professional artist in the medium of painting. I studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at University of NSW, Collage of Fine Arts, Sydney. I worked in the film and photographic industries to then come back full circle to my love of painting. From this love I have exhibited in over 35 solo and group shows in galleries within Australia. Through my work I explore the essence of life – awareness, love, and the source of our being.

In recent years I have taught art as well as meditation classes in Sydney and Northern NSW. Since then I have combined the two to create a fun and relaxing abstract painting, with some meditation, day class. The purpose of this is to allow people to let go of mind ways of being and open to the natural essence they are. From this space the painting is creative, free flowing, and enjoyable. There are no rules as one opens to joy and creation.

I have also created meditation classes (see dates on Cl

A very pleasant morning and a great space to work in. Yvette is lovely and I'm sure she knows a lot about abstract art. It was a good class that I would recommend to others.

Great value for money! Really enjoyed the acrylic painting with meditation. Yvette was a patient and calm teacher and let us go with the flow with our painting and relax .
All materials were provided and most of us painted four pieces including one canvas.
Venue was good with free parking around the roads at the back. Main road too busy and only 2hr parking.
Very much enjoyed the class especially as it was just four people.
