Re-connect with your creative side at an intuitive abstract ART + JOURNALING painting workshop nestled in my private art studio at the back of my garden in Brighton & Hove.
If you’re looking for a regular painting practise that you can do in the comfort of your own home, this art class is for you.
You will take your morning page (daily journaling practice) to the next level by learning to express yourself with colours, shapes and texture and create a piece of artwork that reflects your innermost feelings.
You will let go of perfectionism by resisting the urge to paint “pretty”, or “perfect” or “easy”…. you will have a full permission to be free, spontaneous, brave and messy.
You will discover abstract mark-making and layering process with collage, intuitive drawing and painting techniques (no artistic experience is necessary).
Unique opportunity to experiment with different mixed media art materials: acrylic, gesso and watercolour paint, pastels, charcoal and other art materials.
This 3 hour long painting workshop will enable you to untangle difficult emotions, tap into your intuition and reconnect with yourself in a creative way without using words.
What to expect:
Grounding Circle: Begin by setting intention and embodiment exercises (breath &/or meditation) to help you ground, become more present and open to the free-flowing creative state.
Playful Exploration: Together, we will explore various art materials like acrylics, gesso, charcoal, pastels and my favourite abstract painting techniques. All centred around experimentation, expression and letting go…
Art Journaling: express thoughts, feelings and emotions with wide range of art journaling approaches and techniques
Meaningful Connection: Bond with other participants over herbal tea and delicious nourishing treats in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. If the weather permit we will take a full advantage of time in the secret garden.
This isn't just a painting workshop or art class in Brighton; it's a safe space for rediscovery, self-expression and healing on your personal journey.

I'm Magdalena, Brighton intuitive mixed-media abstract artist and I help people awaken their creativity by running the most experimental intuitive painting workshops and courses in professional art studio.
I spent years browsing art shops, buying supplies but never using them.
I spent years focusing on a corporate career, success, recognition and things that didn’t fill me with joy instead of making space for creativity.
Now, I feel incredibly lucky because I get to do things that makes me excited to wake up in the morning!
And...
I understand that it can be hard to make time for creativity.
That’s why I created PAINT with ME workshops where all art materials, huge canvas (or small canvas/art journal) and lunch is provided. I wanted a safe place to bring people together to explore intuitive abstract painting just for the fun and joy of it.
This dynamic and creative free-flow painting workshop will move you through past fears, creative blocks and self-doubt into joy and freedom!
My painting workshops are for everyone, even those who think they aren’t creative or can’t paint or draw.
