"Melissa’s intuitive painting art workshop was an incredible experience. This inspiring space really encouraged me, both to let go and be bold, as I moved through the fear of not painting beautiful enough. It helped me welcome joyful and spontaneous expression. I learned a variety of techniques, worked with vibrant colours and tools. Kept the momentum by moving the body to music, and last but not least, connected more deeply to my feelings and left feeling inspired!" - Angela

Intuitive Art Workshop - ONLINE & IN-PERSON
When was the last time you created art without planning, without an end goal, and just allow your emotions to come through the art? Do you find it hard to sit with your emotions on your own?
That's what this workshop is all about. Creating the intention to allow your emotions to have a voice, through the paintbrush or pen. Listening to your inner guide, letting your intuition show you what it wants to express. It's about holding space for yourself, letting go of the outcome and enjoying the process, while being supported and encouraged in a group setting (or online!) by a professional artist.
Locations: Online live session, or face-to-face: Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Northern Rivers.
