This course is designed to help you “free up” your creativity by exploring a range of art materials and approaches which will promote unexpected creative discovery. You will have the opportunity to create a series of art pieces, exploring a concept of your choice which the tutor will help you to identify, culminating in your own unique creation. This course facilitates active experimentation and an exploration of creativity via all your senses. It will help to give you the confidence and discernment to realise which areas of artistic expression you wish to explore next.
