Looking for a unique, creative painting experience in Brisbane? Come along and paint your authentic self, a friend, family member or even your favourite celebrity at this portrait class and develop your own personal art style!

Risso Creative’s authentic self-portrait painting class is about championing individual empowerment and celebrating our authenticity.

Own your style. How you want to present yourself to the world should be a source of self-confidence rather than self-doubt! The completed portraits represent real people and capture their nature, uniqueness and individual style.

Be guided by artist Risso and come to understand the colour palette you wish to use for your portrait. Discuss the accessories you desire and any particular textured background effects. You may like to bring in a favourite photo to use as a reference or for inspiration.

We will use a range of colours and drawing tips to create your look. Materials and canvas will be supplied all you will need is to do is BYO your drinks and snacks and get painting!

Please note: We also run mobile creative classes for private one on one classes, or events such as hens parties, ladies lunches, or corporate team building activities.

Hey there creatives!

I’m Risso your artistic guide.

I am an expressionist artist from Brisbane, Australia and my creative practice is all about enhancing wellbeing through creativity.

Personally, I paint mostly free-flowing abstracts, create digital art, and explore mixed media and textiles. I am keen to share my passion for creativity and mindfulness art with you.

My classes are fun, social, and engaging but at the same time relaxing as you connect with the present moment. I'm here to inspire, empower and guide you to connect with you on your short art course journey.

All levels and abilities welcome. Come with no prior experience and finish the session with work you can be proud of, you will learn tips and skills and new ideas to manage your wellbeing through creativity.

I look forward to meeting you all!
