About this workshop
What You Learn
This workshop is all about getting back in touch with how to use your own imagination as a guide to creating images. It will invigorate and inspire you. I will show you how with demonstrations and then help you apply the techniques yourself. Even if you have never painted before you will gain much from this day. In a supportive and strictly non-competitive environment – we have fun, play and doodle our way into brilliant results! Even if you already paint a little, or even sell the occasional work, you will come away with some fresh and exciting ideas. There is no particular ‘subject’, we are learning about – such as landscapes, portraits or animals etc. The subjects will automatically evolve as we go. That is the magic part. You do not need to know how to draw to do this. That’s right, not even a straight line! There is however a process and structure which I will teach you so you can complete your artworks.
“You will discover some pretty amazing things residing in your unconscious – of that I am sure. People are simmering with genius, and all they need is a key to unlock it” Helen Norton
I held this very exclusive workshop with a group of Jungian analysts some years ago in Sydney as a method of exploring personal inner narratives. In our Fremantle gallery/studio we conducted the workshop with a group of non painters to create a huge mural with great success.
“I didn’t know I had these images in my head. I have been teaching people to delve into their unconscious for decades and yet in one morning I felt like a real artist” – David, Sydney

About The Artist - Helen Norton
Narration is the backbone of Australian artist Helen Norton’s work with a history of over 30 years of exhibiting successfully in Australia and overseas in over 60 solo shows. Norton believes an artist’s work should evolve and grow as proof of an artist remaining creative. Taking risks, stepping outside the comfort zone on image creation, and using image as a language for story telling are all part of her philosophy. Helen has won many awards and completed major commissions including Qantas Inflight and Club magazine covers. A recent body of her contemporary abstract work ‘ A World Affair’ was featured as a major window installation in the Perth Fashion Festival in the Trustee building in Brookfield Plaza home of BHP Billiton the largest mining company in the world. Her works have been supporting major animal welfare and other charities across Australia for the past 10 years.
