FLORAL Painting Workshop $900

3 days· no experience needed· all materials & food provided

Nothing is as versatile than a still life AND a vase of flowers gives us lots of opportunities to explore colour and beauty. 


Its not as difficult as you might think

Van Gough, Margaret Ollie and Matisse responded to the beauty of a vase of flowers in their own unique way and you will too! Working from carefully composed still life studies, we work in a broad colour palette of acrylic paints and a variety of tools so you will feel confident to respond in your own unique way.

Enjoy the journey.......

Located in a working artist’s studio nestled on the bushy fringes of Melbourne, join a limited group of 5 and over 3 glorious days, fill your inner tank with local produce, great company and freedom to express yourself artistically while you work on a BIG beautiful take-home HERO painting that will become the heartbeat of the room where it will proudly hang. 

You're in safe hands.....

Formally trained in painting, printmaking, adult education and psycho-spirituality, Shani Alexander believes colour revives the spirit! Rather than teach you ‘how to paint’ Shani weaves her unique skill set into the design of her workshops to offer you a painting experience that has you get a whole lot more than you expected than just your beautiful HERO painting.

You will be fully immersed in colour, food, music and company and will enjoy the freedom to loosen up, soak up the energy of a working artist's studio, embrace colour and also get to know what ignites your artistic soul. And as always in our studio, we have the gentle presence of Florence, our working dog!

Although I already had some basic painting skills, I learnt so many tips and new ways of seeing things with Shani. It isn't just a painting workshop though, it is so much more and everyone will come away from the weekend with different things to address and build on in our lives. Met some wonderful women, had plenty of attention when I needed it all in a beautiful atmosphere, with music, food, wine.. what more can you ask? A truly worthwhile, rich, wonderful experience - worth every dollar.” Kathryn ‘16

A Deeply Present and Intuitive Teacher 

Shani is a gentle, deeply present and intuitive teacher whose workshops are known for the expansion her participants experience. "not in a religious sense but rather in a 'listen to your divine guidance and set your spirit free' sense", Robyn 2015.  Shani nurtures her students through into creative expression and they are set free to feel fully alive. "all my senses came alive with the plunge into colour, movement and it fed my soul and body", Sue 2016.  Shani utilizes all her professional skills to tailor the workshop uniquely to your needs so that you get much more on many unexpected levels than just the BIG beautiful HERO painting you take home. "Shani will push you , coach you, guide you, instruct you, cry with you, laugh with you, prescribe intuitive homework for you, feed you, nurture you, nourish you, paint with you and celebrate with you....Heaven!...and cheaper than therapy. I got a level of myself I didn't even know was calling" Trish

Give yourself permission to rise above your ordinary day-to-day and explode in self expression and joy that will revive your spirit and leave you feeling recharged!
