Amazing Abstracts

my lovely experiences

Learn to paint colour, joyful abstracts you love. Come and join award-winning artist Cassandra Gaisford and her online course “Amazing Abstracts” and learn STEP-BY-STEP how she approaches creating beautiful abstracts.

Cassandra’s art and creativity workshops are known for being colourful, fun, inspiring and practical.

While she does lots of demonstrations, she doesn’t teach you to paint like her…she teaches you how to paint like YOU! You’ll learn through the creative process to find your own voice and style in your art.

It’s a 9-module journey, you can complete from the comfort of your own home and take at your own pace. Cassandra will guide you through her signature process of understanding your deepest joys, loves, passions and values and infusing these into your art skillfully and with purpose.

What will you learn?

The purpose of this workshop is to inspire you with new ideas, whether you are revising your work, beginning afresh or embarking on a new direction. 

This is why this workshop applies equally to the beginning and advanced artists. 

It covers core principles, including composition, values, colour, harmony, texture, inspiration, expressing feelings, and other important elements of abstract art.

Over the course of this workshop, you will discover the unique process of intuitive painting, including mark-making, action paintings and engaging with a blend of tools to unveil countless approaches to create cohesive and joyous work with texture colour and composition.

All while loosening up and losing yourself in abstract expressionism and fields of colour.

Beginning and experienced artists will receive support and encouragement.  Cassandra will be with you every step of the way as she teaches and provides one-on-one guidance and feedback. Emphasis will be placed on the skills necessary to complete simple and engaging artworks.

You will also be invited to join Cassandra’s FB community and encouraged to share and inspire others, as well as receiving one-on-one instruction throughout this course.

Videos and comprehensive instruction will aid learning and encourage skill acquisition.

You’ll receive

  • A materials starter kit, letting you know affordable options to build a staple of art supplies you can use again and again
  • Handy tips sheets, for easy reference
  • Videos and comprehensive modules covering all aspects of creating abstract expressionist artworks
  • Personal feedback and constructive critiques from Cassandra

You’ll also receive a special bonus lesson on how to take a tiny painting and super-size it to create large scale works you adore.

How is this course different from other online courses?

Other teachers use a click, pay, and leave approach to teaching. They load the trainings, using an external software provider to distribute and automate the course you have paid for. Meaning, after you enrol you receive a password to login and are left to flounder.

Cassandra’s classes are different. You will receive personal tutoring and instruction from Cassandra.

After you enrol, your first lesson will be personally emailed by Cassandra (not automated). You’ll be able to ask questions and interact with Cassandra, personally!


Does this course need to be completed in the 6 weeks?

The joy of paint abstracts is also having fun—which is flexibility is a given in this self-paced course. If you need a longer time frame to complete the course just sing out.

Is it downloaded in one go or staggered over time?

Modules are staggered over time. Each time you complete a module you will be sent the next one. This way you will avoid overwhelm and maximise your joy! 

Is there a time frame to get it done by?

Participants have found 12 weeks is a good amount of time to avoid procrastination or letting other things be prioritized. However, we know stuff comes up. The course must be completed within a maximum of 6 months. You can save the lessons on your computer to spark inspiration and watch them over and over again.
