Workshops- Intuitive Art Freedom to paint

My workshops aim to celebrate experimentation and loosening up in order to create more freely.

They attempt to awaken that sixth sense of intuition that most of us have, but have forgotten, in this case, with creativity.

That and negative past experiences where people have been told they are "no good" compound a fear or inability to explore art making in adulthood. 

It is this I aim to readdress by using achievable techniques, fun and confidence building methods in a relaxed setting with lots of group and individual attention. 

I teach the techniques with acrylic paint and mixed media that I use in my own painting by demonstrating, throughout the day, the group then have a go with guidance if needed.

Although I try to avoid absolutes of what does and does not work, preferring people to try everything, during the workshops we will look at which factors can help make a successful painting. The techniques are based on abstract art expression that help convey mood, feeling and explores the potential of the accidental, the surprising and the "mistakes" made on canvas that can free us up to be bolder with achieving our end results.

The workshops cater for between 6 - 12 people depending on space and to keep the atmosphere casual, intimate, friendly and relaxed and to allow people as much input from myself as they need. I also teach "Mixed media and Intuitive art" and "Abstracted landscapes and Intuitive Art. These involve a range of mixed media like papers, collage, leaves and natural finds, sand, masking tape, newspaper, Bleeding tissue techniques, 

These are often in Norwich, Bungay, Harwich, Ely and Cambridge and are for community art groups.

 I run workshops for Art and Mental Wellbeing groups ie Mind and Cambridge Regional College for "Cambridge Community Arts"

 Please contact Sue Kemp at "The Art Trading Company" directly for more information of workshops that I run in Bungay

    Natasha’s “Intuitive Painting” workshop was a really fun and inspiring day. Natasha demonstrated a lot of great techniques to get interesting effects in abstract painting and we spent many a fun hour exploring those techniques for ourselves, with everyone in the group coming up with very uniquely beautiful paintings. If you want to free yourself up a bit and have some fun with painting, then I would highly recommend this course. It was a fabulous day and I left on a real high.

    Never in a million years would I have imagined so enjoying such a well planned art workshop in my kitchen!! As total beginners, you guided us through our first stages and made the whole thing such fun. Fortunately there seems to be no ‘rules’ or ‘rights and wrongs’ to restrict the flow. Making it so easy to get lost in time and place! It’s a big thank you from me, for a brief but interesting escape into your world!

    Thank you Natasha for an exciting and thought provoking day at the Monday Studio in Comberton. The group really enjoyed the medium and everyone felt they had stretched themselves out of their comfort zone and we had some fun while painting. Great day and we were all buzzing when we left.
