Intuitive Art Group
My art group (for adults) is for people with little or no art experience, where the very interaction with art materials is the aim. An enjoyable and meditative dive into creativity is what it’s about; spontaneous, sometimes messy, controlled and also uncontrolled, a delving into colour and form, and cautiously approaching thresholds of the imagination.
The aim is to give you the tools by which you are able, quite quickly, to make spontaneous and free art which is wide open, expressive, and unique to you. It is a process of learning about yourself, and about the nature of creativity which arises spontaneously from within. My vision is that the making of spontaneous art can be an excellent mindfulness practice, wherein we are completely and vitally present – in the act of creation.
The beginning of the course will be about getting to know, through structured exercises, the basic elements: materials, technique, colour and form. Gradually, as you grow in confidence, we will develop ways of working which are broader and more free, leading to a truly spontaneous outflow of art.
