What will you be painting?


Abstract Fun

In this 30-minute painting demonstration, you will learn how to apply multiple layers using paint, ink and paint pens. We tap into our inner child and allow the doodles and scribbles of our childhood artwork guide our creative flow. It's about bright colours, fun and letting go of expectations and the pressure to create a masterpiece.


Flouncy Florals

In this painting tutorial we use flowers to inspire our paint strokes, marks and lines. Using simple house hold items like the toothpick and kitchen sponge we learn how to create beautiful patterns and marks. Paint along with Ciara and experience how easily a painting can come together.


Abstract Landscape

Did you know it's really easy to create an abstract landscape? In this video, Ciara will teach you how to create striking marks using a palette knife in this relaxing abstract painting. Its time to relax, unwind and allow the act of applying paint to a canvas release your intuitive creative flow.
