Art Workshop

Do you remember a time in your life, as a small child, where you loved to dig into your art supplies and just play?

Do you have upsetting memories of a time when someone told you that you weren’t “arty” or that you couldn’t draw, or paint, or create?

Do you keep hearing about the healing powers of creating through art, but don’t know where to start, or if you can start at all?

Do you want to explore your creativity and unleash your inner artist in a fun, supportive and therapeutic environment?

We all have artistic ability and by tuning into the four elements

 

Earth

Air

Fire

Water

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn how to free the artist within – even if you are wounded, or shy
  • Try 2-3 different types of art
  • Play with art supplies in fun, creative and meditative ways
  • Learn to trust and tap into your inner creative – we all have one!
  • Use art for self-expression and self-trust
  • See how you can incorporate meditation into your creative practice to connect deeper with yourself
  • Learn to dialogue with your art- what is this piece telling me about myself?
  • Discover that art is not a stressful process; you can reclaim art as fun!

You will create beautiful art that is representative of the power of nature as you free the artist within!

This workshop will leave you shocked by your own ability when it reveals your untapped ability to make stunning artworks to keep or share with loved ones.

This is not about who can create the most life-like portrait or gallery worthy sculpture. This is an abstract art workshop designed to engage your creativity and build your confidence using art therapy techniques.

Just bring yourself and a willingness to explore the world as the artist that you are!

This workshop is for all levels and all supplies are provided

Location: Mitcham, Victoria

Fun, exciting and filled with new techniques! Di’s Free the Artist Within Workshop is just that… Freeing! I’ve had some experience with painting before, but am far from a professional – and Di made me feel comfortable, encouraged my creativity and flow, and taught me some simple techniques that I can easily replicate at home.

This workshop is ideal for anyone who wants to dive into paint and ink, and who wants to explore a side of themselves that they may not have had the time or space to explore before. Thank you Di! Adele

I absolutely adored Di’s Freeing The Artist Within Workshop – it was so much fun! As someone who can easily get stuck in the details of what I’m creating, I felt so free to explore, play and let go of all form and attachment to what I was creating. I loved working with different free flowing mediums according to the elements, and seeing what emerged as a result. I appreciated Di’s gentle encouragement, guidance and compassion, particularly when I felt stuck and resistant to continuing on.

Her insight helped me trust the process, and the flow on effects were incredible. I highly recommend this workshop for anyone who wants to let go, be free, create from the heart, and discover a magic within them they rarely get to tap into. Thank you, Di, for such a wonderful gift.” Melissa

Di’s freeing the artist within workshop was amazing. I am certainly No ARTIST and would even contemplate calling myself one! In fact, I am or should I say was scared to even try to paint draw or simple play with any artist tools!
However, this all changed when I was nurtured and encouraged by Di.

I arrived feeling a little anxious as I thought I was amongst very creative people in the workshop and I was stepping way out of my comfort zone!

I didn’t want my artwork to be compared to everyone else and I didn’t feel CONFIDENT and have my self-esteem crushed again!

Di’s gentle yet nature and passion for art quickly made me feel comfortable and realise this was about ME and My unique artist within and that there is no right or wrong to any of the processes they are just about discovering, playing and having fun….my little girl awakened as I settled into the day and I had so much FUN!

I came away with 4 art pieces I was super proud of and couldn’t wait to take my paint kits home and continue to play and share this with my kids!

Thank you for freeing my artist within. Melinda
