The lessons in the course have been carefully created so that you can experience and enjoy making art as a creative process, rather than focussing on the level of your artistic skill, without being pressured to produce a perfect end result.
I've chosen specific exercises and activities that will help build your confidence when working creatively.
On completion of the course, students will receive three professional certificates. These include a fully accredited diploma, full accreditation with the CPD Standards Agency and the addition of 10 hours of credit.
Here’s just some of the things the course can help with:
This course focuses on using art and the creative process not only as a healing model but also embraces the pure pleasure that creating art brings us as a means of recreation.
The syllabus is varied and covers a wonderful array of topics. We'll be learning how to make your own mind maps, explore the benefits of intuitive painting, poetry, and seeing how digital art can help express ourselves in this modern age.
For those people who may not have picked up a pencil since school, we'll be looking at ways you can easily master basic drawing skills, including creating your own shading guide, shading techniques and 3D sketching.
Of course, as with my other courses, we'll be enjoying the classics, such a pattern drawing, understanding colour and composition, as well as creating your very own family tree.
The course is suitable for everyone and something you can enjoy either alone, or in group settings, including family bonding or working in the role of supporting others.
I'll show you how you can really benefit from active meditation, and how much sharper your focus and concentration becomes from just a few minutes, of colouring-in.
The course will provide you with endless resources to really indulge your creative side (even if you believe you haven't got one!). As I tell my own clients, we each have a creative side, some of us just need time to nurture it, and that's just what I'll help you to do.
All you need is an internet connection to get started. In terms of art supplies, we recommend basic materials such as paper, pencils and pens etc. It isn’t necessary to invest in expensive equipment to get full benefit from the course.
