For the committed 2d artist who wants to dig deeper into the WHY they create WHAT they create. Not so much the HOW.

What gives you joy? What are your obstacles, the things holding you back?

There will be reflection exercises, and writing and bringing/collecting images to help identify a way forward that is focussed.

Practical hands-on quick painting/drawing exercises. Not anything requiring a big outcome!

Emphasis on the PROCESS.

Individual mentoring. One-on-one time. Private critiqueing of work.

Artist would work in their own chosen media.

On enrolling in the class, I would need some images of the artist’s work, bio, cv, some idea of where they would like to go, questions they would

like to explore so I can tailor the content to suit the group and the individual.

Participants choose to work realistically and/or more abstractly, whatever they choose.

My aim is to support and help to guide the individual to find their unique path (and if they already have, to hone it even further) and give them strategies to continue on to create work that is truly theirs.


Kym Barrett is an Australian professional painter living and working in a SE Queensland bushland. She has had 17 solo exhibitions and her work is contained in public and private collections in Australia and internationally.

She primarily paints with oils and cold wax on board, making abstract paintings that aim to evoke aspects of the landscape imbued with depth and mystery, sometimes called ‘internal landscapes’.

Kym graduated in Fine Arts (painting and drawing) from Brisbane College of Art in 1975 and in Art Teaching in 1976. She has decades of experience teaching adults in workshop situations.

Her passion is in working on-on-one with committed artists, to help them discover their own unique art journey, regardless of their chosen genre or media. She derives great satisfaction in seeing artists become productive, creative and authentic in their art and life.

‘My main focus in teaching is in fostering an atmosphere of open exploration, risk and discovery…’
