Colette Cameron has been teaching for over 20 years
‘I have devised and delivered art workshops for over 20 years. What I have learnt over the years is that the biggest obstacle to creativity is self – judgement, which dampens enthusiasm and prevents progress, not to mention taking the fun out of it! My focus is to help participants to learn to approach the creative process with a sense of freedom; freedom to explore, to make mistakes, to experiment and let the work evolve. Once you make friends with the idea that you will make mistakes you stop holding yourself back. In fact resolving mistakes can lead you to something more interesting than you intended A good question to ask is how can we bring a sense of wonder and curiosity towards the world and our work. I paint in watercolour (with ink, oil pastel and wax resist) I’m inspired by traditional Japanese and Chinese ink painting, and my relationship with the natural world informs my work. Behind the quick expressive marks is much observation and creative focus.Keeping things spontaneous helps me find my authentic voice
