Paint your way to happy

Art for Pleasure, Leisure and Self-Discovery  

I am a firm believer of "Anyone can paint" school of thought only because I have seen the equivalent of 'two left feet' among my art groups master very complex techniques when no-one including themselves thought they could paint! The secret to their success was the willingness to create and our teaching method where being fearless and adventurous while painting is encouraged.

Over the years I have refined and developed these methods to enable beginner painters with 'two left-feet' find their creative voice, learn complex techniques, achieve sound results and use painting to find pleasure and leisure. So if you are looking for uncomplicated art courses that are fun to learn, easy to paint and sets you onto a path of self-discovery, then you are in the right place. The first two of our offerings cover color-mixing and building healthy attitudes through art. Our future offerings will cover more mediums such as water colors.

What some of our student's have to say about our courses...

  "Simple and beautiful. Was a beautiful course full of information and easy to follow. loved it.   "

"Colour Mix What an experience this colour mixing course has been. I had some knowledge of mixing primary colours but had no idea about complementary colours and tones. It has opened up a whole new world of colour mixing fun. Having a limited time created some pressures but it was good as I remained focused and motivated. There was some confusion on my part regarding the time frame but I work better with a deadline. It also gave me a reality check regarding some basic technology like uploading my work. However,  Soma was most encouraging and helpful throughout. She is a very experienced artist and passionate about teaching. My own artistic efforts have been enriched with this course and I  am very proud of my whimsy owl and blue toned bird. Thanks very much Soma.

  "Definitely worth it! I used this course as 'Mother & Son' time with my 7 year old during school holidays. It began as fun but I was impressed on how the course has been designed with such simplicity that my son was highly motivated and found the techniques really easy to follow. Thank you Soma :) I think it is highly commendable that your course can be easily followed by kids as well as adults. You are definitely my go-to person for Art & Wellness ! Looking forward to more courses."
