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 – all sessions are 90 minutes.

Launch promotion valid until end August: 5 x launch price $50 sessions for the price of 4! (i.e. $200 per person for 5 sessions to be taken by 31st August.)

From 1st September 2020: One-time discovery session: $60 per person.

Back to school promotion: $360 for 7 sessions to be taken between 24th August and 9th October 2020.

Private group (up to 5 people) one-time session: $300.
