Absolute Beginners: You’ve never EVER painted before, but you’re curious, maybe even a bit scared. You don’t have a clue where to begin. This one day intensive painting class will be perfect for you!

Now And Then Dabblers: You paint ‘a little’ from time to time. You love it, but you never seem to have the time to learn ‘properly’. Painting seems to be an indulgence, where’s the time for it? No worries – my seven step process and intensive but fun approach will give you ‘proper’ structure to build your practice around!


Have you ever looked longingly at a beautiful piece of art, and thought, “I wish I could do that, but I don’t have a creative bone in my body!” Or are weekly art classes impossible, because you just can’t spare the time?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’, then you’re in the right place, Painting for Beginners was actually designed for you!


This is a ONE DAY intensive, where you learn my unique seven step process to create beautiful, strong, abstract paintings from scratch – even if the last time you painted, your mum said, “that’s lovely, darling!” and popped it on the fridge.

The day is packed with content, insanely busy and so much fun! You will be guided along one of the many pathways to creating art, and totally surprise yourself at just how much you learn in just ONE day. (And best of all – no need to buy anything – just rock up with nothing but your lunch, as ALL materials, along with extensive notes, are provided). Just watch the video below to take a peek right into my workshop and I hope to see you there!

I'm a bit late doing this review but would like to say that I loved every moment of the day course at Applecross . Malini it was lovely to spend the day with you, very informative, we seemed to have covered a lot of ground. The day was packed full of useful tips that I am trying out in my own time now but I would have no hesitation in taking another course with Malini down the track. The course ticked all the boxes in an instruction orientated way but was way better ... it was fun and thought provoking , a lesson in creativity too. Thanks Malini Sally

What a perfect day we had. This was my second class with Malini and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Malini has a wonderful teaching technique, and with her guidance you create art like you never knew you could. The day goes so fast while you chit-chat, laugh, and create. The venue is perfect, the art supplies are generous, the chocolates are tasty. Thank you Malini for introducing me to art.

Spending the day doing Art with Malini Parker was an amazing experience!! I thoroughly enjoyed myself. There was so much love and encouragement from Malini! She has so much she wants to share and give, so that we can all realise our creative flair and abilities. Be Brave I say and give painting with Malini Parker a try. You might just enjoy yourself and find a passion you didn't know about!!
