Let YOUR Inner Creative Diva Out To Play…
With A Sillier Than Sally Mixed Media Art Workshop!

This  “Mixed Media Arty Party” is all about arty FUN! It is a full day of creating, making and painting…..with of course the necessities thrown in – like dance breaks, yummy food breaks and a sneaky drink or two!
My mixed media workshops are perfect for the “But I am not creative” people and the more “Arty inclined” people alike!  
You will learn loads of fabulous new art techniques, mark make with a variety of tools (we don’t just stick to brushes here), spray paint, stencil your little heart out, get a little finger painting on, draw a simple and stylised creative diva (with plenty of help from me, so no drawing skills nessecary), and collage up a storm with vintage papers (I have the best vintage paper collection, this side of the universe)…..and at the end of the day, you will go home with a lovely new 30cm x 30cm art piece you created & thats ready to hang on your wall….. you will also have made some fabulous new creative friends from the day to add to your tribe!
My workshops are intimate and capped at four participants to guarantee plenty of guidance and one-on-one assistance.
My workshops are for complete beginners to more established artists, each person will learn something new and dynamic in a fun and supportive

You basically just need to rock up with a smile and a “can do, lets paint the town red attitude” and I will supply the rest!

Flow Of The Day:  We will start with hellos and morning tea at 9:30am (sharp), we will talk about all things art, chat a little colour theory and also about letting go of striving for a “perfect” piece of art and embracing the fun side of art making. Then we will dive straight into mark making, finger painting, dripping paint, stencilling and collaging your first few layers on your 30 x 30cm canvas.
Over the day, you will build up the layers, textures and interest on your canvas with fun and interesting art techniques, with the last layer being a stylised and simple drawn version of “Your Creative Diva Lady” that we will create with stabile all pencils, charcoal and paint (don’t worry, there will be plenty of “How to draw a face tips” and I will be right next to you, to create the piece with you). We will also seal your art piece, so its ready to hang in a place of pride in your home.

What previous workshop ladies have to say….

“Had such a great day! Sally you are an amazing person.  I loved every minute of it! The ambiance, your character, your personality, your hosting with the delicious lunch and morning tea, on going drinks, the music, all your art stuff that we had access to, your mentoring as we moved through the process – I really did love it all and didn’t want it to end! LOL!
I loved learning all the little techniques you showed us how to not be fearful and letting go to receive something in return which was an amazing artwork which everyone has complemented us on.
I also loved meeting the lovely ladies who were there. It was such an intimate day and honestly cannot say enough how much I needed a day to spend with other like minded people and just be creative and do something for myself, completely and utterly myself, it was very liberating!”

“Wow! What a fabulous day. Highly recommend it. Got to try products I’ve never used and thanks to her step to step process and tremendous art supplies I created an artwork I’ve been too scared of doing for a long time. And I love it! Highly recommend the course for beginners and more advanced. A fun and relaxed environment to create.  Thank you sally!”

“Loved loved this workshop!
Tones of fun and great company. I have not stopped taking about it with everyone.
Can’t wait to do it again!”

“So your class was awesome, the setting was awesome, the teacher was pretty awesome, the other ladies in the work shop were awesome, the food was awesome, the music was awesome……yeah just a whole lot of awesomeness. Soooooo worth the 500km round trip on the day. So thanks for being awesome!!!”

“Thank you SOOOOO much for such a fun day of painting Sally!! It was awesome meeting you…you’re such a fantastic teacher & I love your energy! I also LOVE my painting!! It’s already hanging in my home.”

“I had been looking for something to do just for myself when I came across Sillier Than Sally Designs mixed media arts classes.  With little to no talent for drawing or painting (or so I thought!) I signed up.  The day arrived and I was feeling apprehensive upon arriving at the studio.  There was no need for panic, not only did the day meet all my expectations, it exceeded them. Sally sure knows how to teach art.  Right from the start the day was fun, energetic and creative.  Sally, you are a star! I am in love with my piece, still can’t believe I did it!“

This (below) is the fun style of “Creative Diva” art piece we will be creating – Each persons piece will turn out so unique and different. Believe me, you will be in love with what you create. Your awesome creative self (that I know is in there) might just surprise you!
