ABOUT THE COURSE
Drawing is a natural skill. Whether you're a beginner or a more experienced artist, these unique weekly sessions, are designed to develop your perception and visual skill.
The energy and spirit of the human form is fundamental, it’s the thread that runs throughout this series. Drawing from a live model is the most direct way I know to learn how to access your innate visual skills which can also be applied to drawing or painting anything. You won't just be learning 'how to' but will be tapping into your unique creativity to respond personally and with meaning to our models.
Intuitive painting is a playful process; freeing your creative self and releasing anything that gets in the way of full creative expression. You will be supported to be courageous, experiment and take risks. Exploring line, gesture, colour, observation, awareness, feeling and personal intuitive expression with a multitude of materials.
Using music and dynamic drawing and painting exercises it is possible to make an instant connection, bypassing your analytical brain and moving into creative flow. These moments of 'flow' or being 'in the zone' is where the magic happens and drawings emerge without effort. Being in these states enhances a sense of wellbeing and joy that filters into your daily life.
Come and join me on a joyful creative adventure.
We all have an artist inside that has either been fed or starved since childhood.
Pablo Picasso summed it up well; “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up”
For the past 15 years, I have been working with children & adults to help them awaken to their own creativity and artistic freedom.
"Whilst studying Art & Anatomy at Art School in the 80's, I realised we were learning much more than drawing and painting. It was an awakening and deepening of perception and sensitivity; a way of being. Since then, and throughout my practice, I have experienced moments, of being in an altered state, meditative, it was spiritual and I loved that mysterious feeling.
I love to create a nurturing environment that will support each participant and their unique process."
Whether you're a beginner or a more experienced artist, this unique course is designed to develop your perception and visual skill.
