This online course is about helping you to explore ways of generating creative responses to ideas and themes. Combining observational exercises, mark making practices, and imagination, Colette will guide you each week with a theme and specific exercises. You will be working in different formats, and with a broad range of materials, often using mixed media, and new techniques. Discover how an initial theme can be used as a springboard. Learn how to follow the tread of an idea and turn it into your own personal response. Join us on this fascinating journey, and exercise your creative muscle You will need a basic range of art materials including paint, pencils, coloured drawing materials, ink or biro, scissors and glue. All abilities welcome, curiosity more important than skill. Ideal if you have a creative urge but don't know where to start

Email me to express an interest and i will aim to find a date that suits you.
"I loved your class. I love your teaching style, so utterly competent yet non threatening. Really helped allay my huge fears. I think you are very skilled at creating and leading a supportive safe group"
"Thank you Colette for an absolutely lovely class. The pace was perfect. I learnt such a lot in two hours! It was so good to see my mother relax and we were were laughing together which was probably the first time since the beginning of lockdown. I know she loved it and I know what my next present will be to her. Another class!! We giggled all the way home!!"
