Learn to paint for joy using the Creative by Nature Art Method – a powerful yet playful nature based painting practice you will love.

Watch how quickly you will shift into a peaceful place of free flow painting, naturally. Build your skill and confidence in a supportive creative environment. Come away with a simple yet powerful painting practice to call your own or boost your current practice with new vigour.
