More details about “No Comment” Painting-Play

Prerequisites:  The ability to hold a paintbrush. Painting-Play is multi-generational, inclusive and egalitarian.

Painting-Play is a process-based approach to painting, play, self-expression and well-being.

Participants agree to leave their paintings in the care of the Closlieu, where they will be named, dated and carefully preserved by Lucy Shaw, a certified practitioner. Lucy has been trained personally by Arno Stern in Paris to discreetly ensure that the conditions are right for painting-play to occur and natural, spontaneous self-expression to arise (“la formulation”), for example by facilitating the access to materials, making sure every one is comfortable and adopting a completely non-judgemental stance.

In this alternative art studio, there will be no exhibitions. However, if painting-players would like their family or friends to see their paintings, they are welcome to invite them to make a private appointment at the Closlieu.

Learning, skill development and a heightened sense of wellbeing will increasingly be noticed over time, therefore it is highly recommended to attend Painting-Play sessions regularly – ideally around once a week, month upon month, year upon year. Of course, this can take school holidays into account.

PRICING – sessions are 60 or 90 minutes.

Standard pricing is $60 for 90 minutes and $40 for 60 minutes, but look out for special offers for multiple session packages!

Private group (currently up to 5 people) one-time session of 60 minutes: total $190.
