o Exploring atmospheric colour moods

o Introduction to Veil Painting.

o Working with Light and Darkness in the medium of charcoal.

o Observation exercises to increase tonal and colour awareness.

o Colour in relationship to the human being evolving through time and childhood development.

o Introduction to Painting Therapy according to the method of Liane Collot d’Herbois.

o Using liquid water- colour and a moist piece of paper, we will learn to paint atmospheric colour moods. The way in which the colours shine and flow into each other, stimulates the imagination and lays a foundation on which to begin building up a picture. This way of painting is very nurturing and relaxing for all ages. For this workshop we will focus on the colour magenta.

Sally Martin has been involved with Anthroposophy since 1980, mainly working in the context of Camphill Communities in the UK. (Living and working together with people with special needs) Throughout her life, Sally has been fortunate to be able to work with many fine artists who stimulated her own artistic development, and from each of them she gathered new insights into the world of colour. In 1994 she came in contact with the teachings of Liane Collot d’Herbois, successfully completing four years of painting therapy training at the Emerald Foundation in the Netherlands; followed by a further 4 years of artistic painting training in this method. In July 2001 Sally moved with her family to Australia. Since then she has consistently worked as a teacher and a therapist both locally and further abroad. In 2008 she founded The Sienna Academy for painting therapy and artistic painting according to the method of Liane Collot d’Herbois. This Australian four-year training based in Mapleton on the Sunshine Coast is well supported by visiting specialist teachers and has attracted an international group of students.

Sally visited Singapore in July last year and ran very successful sessions for our community here. She also works very closely with Dr Lakshmi Prasanna with schools in Australia.
