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! You’ll be immersed in your creativity and learn exactly how to create beautiful textured paintings in no time. No more fear of the unknown, I’ve got you covered :)

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!” Do you yearn to express your creativity, but you just don’t know how? Are weekly art classes impossible, because you just can’t spare the time?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then you’re in the right place, Painting for Beginners was designed just 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).

I will personally guide you, step-by-step, through the very same process that I use to create my own art (you can see my work over here www.maliniparker.com). We start with the absolute basics and progress steadily on to using texture and colour, making effective compositions, and how to finish paintings. And friends, there is more to making art than just learning ‘techniques’ – during this special workshop, I share my secrets, de-construct my process, demonstrate each step, we have a laugh or two, and before long, you would have uncovered (or recovered!) your creativity.

LOCATION: In the gorgeous location of my purpose built, light-filled studio in the Perth hills, surrounded by trees and birds, you will be inspired by the sights, smells and sounds all around you!


By the end of the workshop you will have several beautiful, textured paintings to take home. All that anxiety about the creative process vanishes! You learn solid techniques that you can apply over and over again, as you go on to develop your unique style.

Warning: If you are looking for an art class where you are left alone to paint for hours … then this would not be for you! Painting for Beginners is an intensive art class where I offer my heartfelt, useful, practical instruction, no time to worry!), and you have loads of fun. All within my amazing, beautiful, peaceful, purpose-built art studio!

What a fantastic day! Malini was a delightful teacher and gently encouraged us to move out of our comfort zone. Malini was very organised and the day flowed beautifully in her beautiful surroundings. She allowed me to explore my creativity in a safe and encouraging environment thank you Malini, I look forward to the next course with you Lee-Anne

Wow! What a wonderfully creative day we all had. I organized 5 friends to attend 'Painting for beginners Intensive' and this workshop surpassed my expectations. Malini was fun, warm, informative and very professional. She was a delight to be around and open to sharing all she had. We were so impressed with the gorgeous venue, the abundance of guidance provided and a day spent with friends where we could play, be curious and open to a new way of expressing ourselves in the world. Thank you so much. Dx

I really enjoyed the day in Malini's beautiful studio located amongst the trees and greenery of the hills which sets a very peaceful mood. The processes we learnt were very unique from anything I had experienced before but the outcome was amazing. Each step is simplified , well organised and non threatening. Our group was made from people from all walks of life and varied age groups. I would class myself as a 71 year old beginner. Malini is very professional,warm and friendly and puts everyone at ease. GREAT DAY
