Action Painting Workshop

Express Yourself Through Motion

2.5 hours Class size 1 to 4 label $60 - $80 ($80 per guest when you book for 1+ guests, $60 for 3+ guests)

Action painting is spontaneously dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than other art methods which focus on careful application. With roots in the 1950s Abstract Expressionist movement, Action painting is based on a period of artists who valued the physical interaction with materials more so, or on par with, the finished product.

Express yourself through physical motion and create stunning art. Whip, flick and swish paintbrush against canvas. Experiment with different textures, willow charcoal, sharpies, inks and oil crayons. Broaden your knowledge of the Expressionist movement and the great action painters of the past.

Get in-touch with your emotions and create artwork to the backdrop of moving tunes. Bounce themes off one another: nostalgia, tribal rhythms, blue. Pry between brushes and stamping tools made out of potatoes, onions, sticks, cloth, brushes, eye droppers and spray bottles. Walk away with your very own large painting on loose canvas or box board.

Knowledge Required
Basic drawing skills (lines and shapes).
What to bring
All equipment provided. Students are encouraged to bring sticks, sponges, lipsticks, boot polish, toilet brush or any equipment that can leave a mark or may feature in an artwork.

Your teacher can travel within 70 kms of Hurlstone Park with 2 or more students

About Me:

I fell in love with colour at a very young age. At age 5 I would come up with Colour Combinations and assign matching colours to my family & friends. (I still do this)
I then learnt to draw and by High School I took upon Art for my HSC and it was then that I knew, not that I wanted to be an Artist- that I already was one.
I Studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts at UWS And studied further on a more practical level at Northern Sydney College where I excelled in Painting and Concept Development. I am an ideas woman.

My work is diverse and expressive, with many special touches and nuances and abstract allusions. I like to say, "I make colour dance in your eyes!" Within my paintings, there are many special hidden details and much lush materials used such as Inks, Pigment Powder, Embossing Powder and Gold, Silver and Copper Leaf. In short, my art could be described as extravagant and dreamlike.
