PLAYFUL PAINTING, INTUITIVE ART 

WITH MELANIE DILDAY

Do you ever feel like there's an artist within you just waiting to come out, but you've always been too afraid to even try? Or maybe you've dabbled in painting before, but lack the confidence to really express yourself on the canvas.

I understand how daunting it can be to approach a blank canvas, which is why the Playful Painting Workshop was created - a safe, encouraging, and super supportive environment for people just like you. 

Join me for a day of dancing, splashing, spraying, scraping, dripping, mark making and laughing as we unlock your creative flow and ignite your passion for painting. Our intuitive, playful process is perfect for beginners and those wishing to breathe new life into their painting. You'll be amazed at the talents you uncover within yourself. 
 

Please note. These paintings are examples of what is achieved through this process. You are each going to create your own meaningful imagery. This process helps coax your own creativity and so your imagery will be unique and meaningful to you.
