Creative Self Expression 2-day intuitive art workshop is open to all skill levels, from beginners looking to bring some creativity into their lives to artists interested in exploring new ways of approaching their artistic process. Through guided prompts, we will create self-portraits with colour, symbol, image and line. Intuitive painting bypasses the thinking process to bring insight into hidden parts of ourselves.
We will work at a reasonably quick pace throughout the workshop to maintain flow and to prevent over-thinking and getting caught in the perfection trap. Through layering and expressive mark making, we will build our self-portraits to represent our emotions, our yearnings, our past, our present and our future dreams.
This workshop is heavy on the doing and light on the thinking. We will immerse ourselves in the materials, explore colour theory, make our own colour wheels and try out our art supplies. We will do a couple of basic drawing exercises and I will show you how to draw a stylised face. Then moving forward with prompts, I will provide examples as we paint and demonstrate techniques by creating two self-portraits with you from start to finish.
This workshop is R950. The Workshop includes two days of facilitated workshop time with plenty of one-on-one time, coffee or tea on both days and delicious lunches by Ann's Kitchen.
