The Art of Flow - Wk6 - Explore the human figure through mixed media - June 13 @ 7:00pm
Date and Time
Create or Die - Farr Street Arts Centre
7 Farr St, Marrickville NSW 2204, Australia
This is a 6-week series that teaches you to unleash your own unique style and creative flow. You can come to the whole series or single sessions.
It is suitable for both seasoned artists and beginners.
At Create or Die, we believe that creativity is an innately human trait, and that we all have an artist inside of us that has either been fed or starved. Come feed your creative soul with our wonderful teacher Gabbi Lancaster.
Go with the Flow... mix it up!
Mixed media on steroids...Tonight is the final of the series and we will combine all materials and techniques....Starting with exploring line, gesture, colour, observation, awareness, feeling and personal intuitive expression with a multitude of materials. It will be messy...
Intuitive painting is the practice of freeing your creative self, helping us release the things that get in the way of full creative expression... like perfectionism, comparison and the need for approval. The Art of Flow supports us to be courageous and experiment and take outrageous creative risks.
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science....pause and wonder and stand rapt in awe." Albert Einstein

THE ART OF FLOW - a 6-week series
An exploration of the human figure through drawing, painting & mixed media.
For the past 15 years, Gabbi has been working with humans (both 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.
The energy and spirit of the human form is fundamental, it is the thread that runs throughout this course.
Drawing a live model is the most direct way I know to learn how to access your innate visual skills, which can then be applied to drawing or painting, or any visual medium.
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.
Using music and dynamic drawing 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.
