Paint your own Large Abstract Painting on canvas workshop.
This isn’t a typical painting art class. This isn’t a “paint by numbers” class or “copy how I paint” approach.
In this class we will do things differently:
The main tool we will be using is not the brush. It’s our mind - free from limitations.
We will paint intuitively! Spontaneously to the music, allowing the paint to evolve and reveal itself freely into an explosion of colours, patterns, marks, shapes, texture on the canvas.
We will paint big! Big brush movements, a bold colour palette and even using your fingers. The intention is to let go of any expectations and fully express ourselves, our inner world, our feelings and emotions.
We will get messy! It’s rare opportunity to experiment with a wide range of art materials (acrylic, watercolours, pastels, chalk etc) to find our creative voice in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
We will free ourselves from limiting beliefs! This dynamic and creative free-flow painting style will move us through past fears, creative blocks and self-doubt into joy and freedom!
The people who come to this class are from all walks of life, and the urge to create and express through painting brings us together. So let’s seek inspiration, experiment, let go, and nurture our creativity together - for creativity is an essential part of human nature. The practice of making art is the practice of living fully.
Let’s embrace our messy imperfect life through abstract art painting.
Knowledge required
Beginners friendly, no-painting or drawing skills are required. Adults & teenagers welcome.
This is a safe space for anyone! Even those who think they aren’t creative or can’t paint or draw. Also, this is a great opportunity for creative types who haven’t picked up a paintbrush in a while but are longing to express themselves through art. We can play and feel like a kid again without worrying about the end result. Nobody will judge what we create together. We are all on a journey to find our inner artist.

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!
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.
