Paradise One Art Retreat with Daniel Mirante
Katia’s bliss is to create and teach across US, UK, Germany, Austria, Australia and Bali.
Her extensive training in the lineages of Dali and Fuchs founded an MFA thesis to rejuvenate classical painting using contemporary philosophy and modern materials.
She is infamous for the ease and speed with which she achieves the luminousity, realism and beauty of the traditional labour intensive approaches, such as Mischtechnik.
Classes include:

– Art as a Mystical Practice

– Modernised Mischtechnik

– Building Light, Depth & Atmosphere

– Manifesting Your Divine Visions

– Introduction to Indirect Oil Painting

Options for Training

1. SUNDAYS 11-5pm at Visionary Art Atelier, Melbourne, Australia ~ $70 per day

2. BYRON BAY Intensive Weekends

3. HOST AN INTENSIVE!  Small private groups often invite Katia to their home town!

4. BALI ARTIST COMMUNE ~ September & May every year ~ by application

5. MENTORSHIP (in person or via Skype) ~ 5 x 1 hour sessions ~ $150



“A powerful concoction erupts when visionary artists unite to deepen their spiritual and technical practice.

We reflect and amplify one another’s angels and demons and passionately pour into it all into Art.”

Katia Honour travels Asia,  Europe and America to reside in monasteries, spiritual centres, art galleries and artist communities. Whenever and wherever possible,  she shares her passion through immersive, intensive art sabbaticals.

Many artists host Katia to customise artist communes by invitation and application.
