Book Now

Join artist Crystal Fischetti for this two-day workshop exploring abstract art with a therapeutic twist. Get inspired by Helen Frankenthaler: Radical Beauty and Crystal's art practice to explore the relationship between creativity and expressing your emotional world.

You’ll come away having developed your skills in painting, with a new knowledge of how to express yourself creatively and take home a series of your own experimental artworks.

All experience levels are welcome, including complete beginners.

All materials are included. However, Crystal works with found materials and so encourages you to bring along any materials you have to hand at home that you would like to use in your art making.

Crystal Fischetti creates abstract works which are a fusion of vibrant colours and gestural movements. Using a soak-staining method to apply paint to unprimed canvas, paper or linen laid out upon the floor, the resulting works present her movement, energy, and spontaneity. Influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Fischetti also draws on her South American and Italian heritage to create visually striking paintings, murals, installations and works on paper.  

With a BA in Fine Art and Art History from Leeds University and an MA Fine Art at the Chelsea College of Arts. She has been awarded multiple grants, awards, and commissions. Her work can be found is in the collections of MONA, New York, the San Diego Institute, San Diego, and Yue Hu Museum, Shanghai. 

Alongside her spiritual influences, Fischetti draws on Shamanism in her work in accordance with the principles expressed in the philosophy of Paolo Coehlo and the psychology of Carl Jung. Fischetti’s practice is additionally guided by her relationship to sounds, which involuntarily evoke an experience of colour shape, and movement.
