Paint Bali with a Master Artist

Bali, Indonesia

Experience hosted by Michael

4 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

If you are an absolute beginner no need to worry! I will teach you the fundamentals of painting step-by-step as you create your own en plein air (in the open air) oil painting. Just like Paul Gauguin in Tahiti.

In my workshop I will liberate your passion for painting! And free you to explore the manifold expressive possibilities of oil paint and create a painting that is as fresh as home-baked cookies!

The workshop is limited to 4. All of your art materials will be supplied: fast-drying, nontoxic oils, your painting panel (I pack it up for you so that it is safe to travel the next day), brushes, palette, easel, and smock.

Wow! A tropical painting experience!

I'm back in Sanur! My winter home for the past five years. Fresh from Paris where I teach painting until the cold, cold winter descends! Then I grab my paints and brushes and head back to Bali.

You may have seen me painting on the back stretches of Sanur. I'm the guy with the paint smeared shirt, a solitary Ulysses carrying on the great tradition of en plein air and travel. It is my passion; I live my dream and I want to share it with you.

I paint in all kinds of weather. In fact, rainy days are my favorite

Where you'll be

Like the great artist Paul Gauguin escape to a tropical island and paint the hidden charms of Segara Beach
in Sanur away from the madding crowd. We'll be set up in the shade on a quiet stretch of beach with plenty of painting options. Quite a few jukungs (Indonesian outriggers) are hauled up on the beach making for excellent paintings!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 4 reviews.

I signed up for this Experience with my sister. I was wondering why Michael did not offer this in Ubud in the rice fields as that is where all the other art and yoga classes are. Once we got started painting I quickly understood Michael's rationale. Having shade and facilities nearby are critical for a pleasant painting experience. I'm happy that Michael thought of everything. We arrived early and Michael was already there. His teaching style is relaxed but not dumbed down. I've taken a lot of art classes and this was definitely one of the best. Michael really opened my eyes. The lunch was local Indonesian fare at a very clean warung. I highly recommend the Ikan Nyan Nyan.

This was a fantastic workshop with Michael!!! The location couldn't have been better. I could tell that he took a lot of care in selecting it. Michael is a very patient teacher and taught me step-by-step how to paint a beach scene in oil. Now I have a great memory of Bali which Michael packed up for me so that it is safe to pack and travel with After the class we went for lunch at a local warung which was excellent and popular with the local people. Thank you for a wonderful day!
