What to expect on this course

This course will teach you active experimental skills and processes to help you to enter into a natural, contemplative flow of creativity.   Understanding these processes will help you to consciously work at creating a space which inspires you both creatively and in your life in general.   Through an exploration of the senses, we will encourage you to go beyond preconceived ideas, out of your comfort zone and into a creative place that enables unexpected creative discovery. 

Those of us who tend to turn out similar work on a regular basis, get frustrated and then do the same thing again… we all know that if you continue to do the same thing you will get the same results.

This course is designed to help you find your own strategies to being creative. We will encourage you to try new approaches and materials, to keep experimenting with new ideas, to try to be aware of your preconceived ideas, and taking the risk of being wrong, outside your comfort zone, and venture into a place that is new for you.

A range of mixed media approaches including drawing, painting, collage and 3D will be used to help the process.

This is suitable for anyone who wants help to allow their own creativity to flourish
