“Art evolves through the transmission of passion and skill across time” ~ Katia Honour ~

Katia supports a small online and in person community of painters in her “Visionary Art Atelier” based in Ubud, Bali and Melbourne Australia. Members receive invitations to international retreats, seminars and soirees with master painters, peer support programs, mentorships, low-cost online courses and in-person classes. 

Katia shares a unique painting approach based upon Old Masters painting techniques but simplified during her 2 years of research for a Master of Fine Art into contemporary philosophy and materials.  She teaches surprisingly simple tips and tricks to improve a painter’s quality and speed, while still capturing the visionary aesthetics we love;  light, realism and beauty.

To join these opportunities, first book your 2 hours Zoom meeting: 

  • Together we explore what you are creating and how you’d like to evolve this
  • Gain personal advice on a current work in progress
  • Video guide to a key skill set that suits your style, eg mischtechnik, sfumato, decalcomania, grisaille, composition, realism and colour compositions
