In this workshop we will cover:

A Note from The Tutor

‘Many times, our focus on creating “finished paintings” consumes us, leaving little room for the essential acts of “play” and “experimentation.” Recognising this, I designed this immersive two-day workshop, providing you with a precious opportunity to embrace new artistic approaches that you might not explore otherwise. By allocating dedicated time for exploration, we can break free from the constraints of traditional expectations and unlock the boundless potential of experimentation. This workshop invites you to unleash your creativity, granting you the freedom to embark on unconventional artistic journeys that will enrich your practice and broaden your artistic horizons.’ Michelle Gibbs

About the Tutor

I’ve been painting since 2003 and teaching art classes both on and offline since 2010, It has been incredibly fulfilling to witness the growth and transformation of countless students on their quest to become better painters.

I completely understand the frustrations that often accompany the process of learning to paint, as I’ve personally experienced it too. There’s an overwhelming amount of information out there, and not all of it is reliable or helpful. That’s why my mission is to make this artistic journey as seamless and enjoyable as possible for my students.

Nothing brings me more joy than being able to provide guidance and support to those embarking on their painting journey. I’m here to help you navigate through the challenges and discover your unique creative voice.
