Our wonderful teacher 

You will leave with:

4  Completed abstract pieces on double thick gallery premium canvases primed and stretched on a Pine Frame (76.2x101.6cm) to take home

What will we do:

This art retreat takes place in our studio capped to 10 people. 

Bring a bottle of wine and settle in for a night of something you have never experienced before!

You will immerse yourself in the moment, connect with your inner child and project your perspective on the world into a physical format. We are going to get abstract and help you to create something truly unique and meaningful. Art is therapy, and through this class, you will have moments of healing, moments of anger, moments of laughter and everything in between. We aim to draw out the inner creative buried inside each of you. Come dressed to leave covered in paint because covered you will be!

Have fun, relax and explore the abstract style. Learn to express yourself guided by our teacher step by step. We will help you to create your own original pieces that are truly yours. This is not a class where we want you all to create the same thing, this is a retreat designed to draw something out of you that has been buried the whole time. We will work on 4 large gallery canvases on easels at the same time adding layers of mediums and use tools to foster self-expression through various opportunities to create. We will use techniques and experiences to foster your creations allowing them to develop over a series of hours and we will witness something very cool come to an apex as you reach a conclusion of each piece.

A few tools we use to foster this creativity:


We will use music to elicit an emotional response to it to guide your hands across your canvas. You will experience painting in a tactile and very physical way. Your teacher will help you to connect with the medium using parts of your body and lay the framework for your creative light to shine.

Colour and Light 

The way you perceive things changes in response to colour and light. We will adjust and manufacture lighting and moods to create a doorway for you to express yourself through paint.

Painting with objects

You will be provided a range of tools of which to experiment with, from pallet knives to corrugated cardboard, newspaper to brushes and everything in between. You will be encouraged to leave your mark in unconventional ways.


We will expose you to acrylic paint, poster paint, pour paints, resin, pigment, ink, textured medium and whatever else you want to use to express yourself. We will have paper, recycled waste, organic and natural material and much more. We want you to reach inside yourself and draw out your creative energy.

Feelings and Raw emotions

It can become apparent as you paint, that you are doing more than a simple creating a picture. We encourage you to lean in and untap this energy to foster growth. Be one with this process this is all part of your journey.

What you can expect

On arrival, you will find your work station set up with 6 beautifully white canvases waiting for you. We are BYO and find a little dutch courage can go a long way when it comes to exploring your artistic side, so you can join your fellow painters outside the studio for a sip and chat while we wait for everyone to arrive.  

Once everyone is here we will invite you all inside to join the class. With catering boxes to fuel your creation, we will start by running you through a few exercises to get you in the mood to create, then (verbally) guiding you through each experience as we present it, you will get the opportunity to connect with art in a new and exciting way and experience the creative process rather than a step by step learn to paint class.

We will break for dinner, wine and chats then return to work building our pieces. Guidance is provided and instruction is supplied. If you feel lost or unsure we will be right there beside you helping you create your own work, one step at a time.

What this is not

A night to get drunk and paint. Well sometimes it is ;-) This is not traditional art therapy, it is therapy uncovered through art. So you can enjoy a glass of wine and a giggle but we ultimately want you to experience your work and have a really great time. 

It's a brilliant bestie experience or something to help artists remove roadblocks in their creative process. It is also a wonderful way to become acquainted with a creative process or to simply learn a new skill or two. We are not going to guide you step by step to produce 6 matching pieces - we want you to flex your creative muscle and spray paint all over the place! We will help you, guide and facilitate the opportunity, but only you can create your work.

Book now and learn to express yourself through art!
