Soul Painting Creations is a weekly class for women wanting to express and explore their creativity.

In this class we will explore the various ways of creating, including painting, drawing, collage, print making and sculptural works.

On the surface it’s about playing with art material but really it’s a deeply nurturing and nourishing time to hear the whispers of your own heart by following your intuition to create.

These classes are designed for those who want to connect with like-minded women in a safe, real and harmonious environment.

It’s also for those who don’t think they are creative or haven’t connected to their creative side for some time. It’s also for those who like to experiment with different mediums and create unexpected delightful works of art.

This class is not for those who are wanting to learn specific drawing or painting techniques.

By the end of the classes you can

  • have had an opportunity to let go of the noise in your life and reconnect to your own heart.
  • have created art that is unique to you.
  • be inspired by others.
  • feel excited to step beyond your current art abilities and experiment with new techniques.
  • feel refreshed by allowing yourself to have ‘you’ time.

Best of all you will have the chance to experience creating works of art that you love!

Start collecting images of mandalas in nature and art to bring along to our sessions and grab an apron or old shirt and get ready to explore your inner creative Goddess.

“Joanne has created a warm, welcoming space to be creative! She provides guidance while I felt I had total artistic freedom. It’s great to be around like-minded women, I will definitely book into another workshop :-)”

“Jo Parkinson has a beautiful relaxing studio which is a pleasure to do some creative work in. Jo would never judge you and has a very open mind on what people are creating. I love my Thursday art group and will continue on with Jo in the future without hesitation. I would highly recommend Jo’s creative sessions even if you have no idea what you are going to create.”

Please feel free to email me at jp@joanneparkinson.com with any queries.

Q: Do I need any art skills or experience to come along to one of the workshops or retreats?
A: The great thing about these classes is that they are suitable for both total beginners and the more experienced artist. A lot of the art processes require no previous skill and I walk you through each step and help you to find your own individual style of creating.

Q: What are the creative classes about?
A: Each session is an opportunity to connect with your inner landscape in a harmonious, safe and supported environment. I create a sacred space where you can express Art for your Soul, it can be healing and/or joyful and everything in between.

Q: What kind of women join these classes?
A: All kinds of women, of all ages join these classes. The thing they have in common is a genuine desire to be the best version of themselves and they enjoy the real connections they make with likeminded women. Each woman is open to expressing the gentle whispers of their heart in the art works they create.

Q: I want to join but the thought of coming to an art class takes me right out of my comfort zone….
A: I think everyone feels this way when trying something totally new. The best thing that may happen is that you love it and want to come back. The worst is, it’s not for you but you were brave enough to give it a go!!

Q: How big are the class numbers?
A: Our classes are kept small with a maximum of 12 students to ensure each student receives individual instruction. Occasionally a special class or workshop may accommodate more people.

Q: Are materials included in my course or workshop fee?
A: Each class is different and I will always let you know if you need to bring your own materials or if they are supplied. It’s a good idea to bring an old shirt or apron so you can be as messy as you like with the art making.

Q: Is there parking available?
A: There is limited free onsite parking and plenty of free and unmetered street parking close by.

Q: When can I book my class/workshop?
A: You can begin booking as soon as our classes for the next term are published on my website.

Q: When is payment due?
A: Payment of the full course fee is required prior to the commencement of the course. All fees are inclusive of GST and tax receipts are provided on request.

Q: What are the different payment options?
A: We accept PayPal and direct deposit.

Q: Is your workshop/course a catered event?
A: Tea and coffee is provided

Q: Where are the classes held?
