Art Classes and Workshops


Whether you are a beginner or dabbler, you're in the right place! I have a range of art classes to choose from.

In the company of like-minded people, you will learn, step-by-step, how to make unique, joyful, textured paintings, (even if you didn't think you knew how). In the process, you not only learn painting techniques but how to let go and express your own creativity and imagination.

Join us at my studio, nestled amongst the gum trees in the beautiful Perth hills, and enjoy an uplifting personal experience. And all my classes are one or two-day events, so you get results quickly, without having to come back week after week!

I invite you to choose one of the classes below or purchase a spot as the ultimate gift for someone else. Imagine surprising your loved one with a gorgeous, personalised Gift Certificate - a gift that will keep on giving!

I look forward to sharing a painting adventure with you very soon, at one of the art classes below!

Wouldn't it be great if approached our days with Clarity and Calm? If we had a blueprint for our journey forward instead of kind of lurching from one challenge to the next? If we didn't keep making goals that we ultimately abandoned, but set intentions that gently guided us through the year before us? Well, who wouldn't?! START WITH ART is designed to help us start the New Year right!

Here, we combine creativity and purposefulness, and make art that reminds us of each of our unique and amazing qualities. We set our intentions for the new year into our art and magic happens! Roll on 2022 - Let's look forward to the future with hope, no matter what!

(This workshop is time-sensitive, and only held at the end of the year and once more at the beginning of 2022, as it's purpose is to prepare us).

Finding Your Way Home with Malini Parker

When life has thrown us some Big Challenges, the creative force within can help steer us back to our strong centres. It strengthens, supports and grounds us. Very little thinking is required. Instead we feel the magic of creativity work its way into our hearts. In this special workshop, I share my own experience of Loss, and the (universal) patterns that emerged in my own journey. I gently guide you to find some of those patterns in your own life, and weave them into creative activities. We explore our amazing, complex journeys with laughter and a light heart … making delicious, personal, beautiful art.

To Boldly Go by Malini Parker

Does weekend escape into a studio in the forest, learning how to create beautiful textured, layered art sound like heaven? Then come with me on a gentle journey into my personal painting process, and let me share a whole lot of different texturey goodness with you! We cover all sorts of texture creation from scratch, from working with actual leaves (from my forest!), to lace imprints, swirly, organic and flowing lines and more... all from scratch, in my step-by-step process. No experience necessary, beginners are my favourite!
