Art in the Everyday
In week one we explore what it means to live a creative life, and how we might be able to expand such a practice in every day moments. In this session you will learn a number of exercises to assist in mindfulness, and self exploration through art making and how it can be used as a therapeutic tool that enriches our lives. This week is designed to inspire an ongoing creative practice in the everyday and create a curious mindset for the following weeks.
Drawing Foundations and Learning to see.
With downloadable handbook.
We explore the foundations of drawing through portrait theory. You'll learn a number of tools to problem solve your own drawing/paintings as well as the technical application of materials.
We observe some of the psychology behind what enables or hinders us to observe the world around us, so we might begin to see with even greater sensitivity and accuracy. The more sensitive we are in our ability to see, the greater the opportunity there is to observe beauty and facilitate joy.
Drawing - Introducing Expression and Play.
This week we observe colour, and expression through the 'still life'. We'll be using drawing materials, watercolours and oil pastels. Super fun. Come and get lost in being a kid all over again.
Painting with Colour
In this weeks session we'll observe colour theory, and use paint material to connect with and explore landscape studies and/or 'Art in Nature.' This is a wonderful introduction into the practice of 'En Plein Air' painting and becoming even more present in the natural world.
Natural Landscapes and Developing Personal Practice
Week 5 & 6 we finish exploring the natural landscape and move into a self guided project (or dive deeper on any of the previous projects) and receive specific guidance on your interest . Discuss or email with Sally before this week to ensure your project is well supported with adequate materials and technical support.
