Please note: Tax invoices are available upon request. There are no child-minding facilities. WH&S requires covered shoes. “Prophetic Art Workshops” accept no responsibility for your WH&S compliance. You are responsible to take care of your own health and safety, to not affect the health and safety of others around you, to comply with lawful instructions and co-operate with the facilitators.
Privacy: “Prophetic Art Workshops” aims to protect your privacy and will not disclose your personal information. However, participation implies permission to reproduce any photographs taken during the workshop or retreat, unless otherwise stated.
What to expect for the day: Although every workshop varies because it is as individual as the participants and we are always available to the Holy Spirit for whatever He may do, you can expect teaching, prayer, prophetic activation, personal art instruction, practical painting time, and Q&A throughout the day.
We will cover:
The prophetic art story – why we do what we do.
Unlocking art – getting you out of your way.
Activation – time to release prophetic creativity.
Practical painting – freedom to paint joyfully.
The course is highly experiential and practice-based. Participants can expect to be exposed to experiences and unconscious processes that may arouse their emotions and offer opportunities for self-discovery and revelation. “Prophetic Art Workshops” aims to maintain an environment safe for each participant. You will also be asked to maintain a safe place for your fellow artists throughout the day. (Fair warning: Anyone who behaves in a disrespectful or disruptive manner will be asked to leave, with no refund.)
Please note we have allowed time within your workshop schedule to set up, pack up and clean up, and please be aware that it is your responsibility to leave your work space beautifully clean and paint-free.
What to bring:
1. Drop-sheet is vital. This is part of your discipline to protect the environment that you create in when you are not at home. No drop-sheet means no painting (and again no refund either, fair warning!) NOTE: The plastic drop-sheets from Bunnings are not really suitable as they stick to your feet and make a mess. It is worth investing in a good cloth drop-sheet, or raiding the linen cupboard for two old sheets, and keep these as part of your Painting Kit.
2. An easel if you have one. If not, the church venue may have small tables that can be used for painting. Please check with us, and bring an additional protective cloth for the table if you do not have an easel.
3. Two canvases or art paper attached to sturdy board. A good size to use is 60cm x 60cm or larger. NOTE: Canvas preparation is not essential, however your workshop experience may be more satisfying if you prepare your canvas with a background of any colour. A flat coloured gesso or Background colour from Matisse or Jo Sonja paint works well, as do student paints or any under-painting (meaning a painting you want to paint over, even if you have picked up an old canvas at Vinnies). It doesn’t matter what colour (as long as it is not white) as you WILL PAINT OVER it.
4. Basic art supplies in your preferred medium, ie acrylics, watercolours, pastels. (However, please do NOT bring oil paints or glitter paint. You will not be permitted to paint in oils or glitter at this workshop.) I suggest acrylics simply because I find them better for live speed painting and you will experience more freedom with acrylics. NOTE: If budget is an issue and you are buying new paint, buy fewer colours of the best paint you can afford. White, blue, and yellow, perhaps red. (PS. Don’t ever bother with black, ask me why in the workshop.) Student paints will disappoint you, although they are fine for a few stand-by pre-mixed colours.
5. Brushes. Bring any brushes you would normally use. Finger painting is also acceptable! I am often asked what brushes I use, here is a short list:
Large flat about 2″ wide
Superfine round size 0-000 with 1” long bristle
Superfine round size 0-000 with 1/4″ long bristle
Small flat brush 1/4″ wide
Old scrunched up brush (used for “whispy” effects).
6. Water container and hand-towel.
7. Paper and pen for activation exercises.
8. Optional: Note taking devices (i.e. Paper and pen, iPad, phone)
9. Optional: Other art materials could include bubble-wrap or scrunched plastic bag, feathers, fern branches, sticks, rags, paper towel.
