Welcome to the world of process art. This is a unique and inspiring way to find your path back to your authentic creative being. This is the being that informs the rest of your life, and learning to let go and trust are invaluable tools for these uncertain times we live in.
Personally, Astar (awakening spirit through art) has been my healing tool for the past 10 years, after having not touched an art material since I was 12. I have learned to trust the process of my life, through learning to express myself without fear and judgement.
These classes will help you unblock any creative medium, from writing, to cooking, to painting professionally. They can also unlock creative potential that is unexplored or as yet unexpressed.
Booking essential as there are only 9 spaces available on each course.Missed classes cannot be reimbursed. Payment options available on request.

CHANCE ART 2
This course encourages very spontaneous “unthinking” art processes where you will learn to “go with the flow”, releasing the idea of needing a plan. Become comfortable with the idea of NOT KNOWING where you are going-like travelling without a map-who knows what you will discover?
You will enjoy SURPRISE EFFECTS through the element of CHANCE, bypassing the critical\judgemental and rational mind.
We will be drawing, collaging and exploring MIXED MEDIA, learning integration of materials and creating interesting, unpredictable artworks.
No art experience required, all materials provided.
THURSDAY EVENING CLASSES:
15th October 2015-8th December 2015 (9 sessions for R2430)
Scrolls are ancient and sacred manuscripts, written and drawn upon for the purpose of transmitting information. They were used in ceremonial ways. Poetry evokes imagery and feelings within us. Poetry allows us to discover layers of meaning, forming connections previously not perceived by us. This course is based around a poem chosen by you that resonates with where you are in your life right now. This is an opportunity to unpack through the visual metaphors of poetry, the words of your life and also to work on a really large piece with freedom and spontaneity.
No art experience required, just a willingness to surrender to the process.
