As seen on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Book or Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft box containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and it should arrive within 2 to 4 business days for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra; 4 to 9 days elsewhere. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. You'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. On the day of the class, use that link to join the class. Class sizes are kept small, so you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device - smartphone, tablet or laptop. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

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

During the online class, 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.

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 - it will do wonders for your mental health.

If you're looking for creative things to do at home, then abstract painting is the perfect way to set you on a new artistic journey!

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 Classbento website). These came about from my love of being with people and opening to the truth of who we are - awareness. I have explored various avenues to open to awareness and have created classes and one to one sessions from opening myself up to what is real. Behind all the stories and different life situations we are all the one self - awareness. I love that we are awakening more rapidly on this planet in this moment of great change. We are coming back home from within.

I currently create through painting, writing, art and meditation classes, and also provide one to one awareness sessions for people to open to our true self. Whatever medium I use, the purpose behind it is my love to open more deeply to truth and freedom. I am deeply interested in people awakening to who they are. Our creative endeavors are an extension of our natural essence.

I really enjoyed the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, felt free to quietly sit and play with paint and listen to the different possibilities. Hearing about the artist who puts her surfaces out in nature inspired me to play a bit more with that after class. The message I took away was the possibility of continually layering and layering and layering over time. Thank you for the nurturing environment and encouragement to experiment, use affordable/free materials and have fun

This was a terrific class, lots of fun and full of useful painting techniques. I loved Yvette's style of teaching, as she started with a meditation to connect you with your energy and creativity. She gave great instructions, along with the freedom to develop your own style and ideas for how to continue after the class. Thank you!

A great introduction to abstract art covering technique and three different styles. The examples were very helpful for guidance. The class moved along at a good pace and gave enough time to focus on each piece.
