I am excited about these classes. For several years now I have had the knawing feeling that there was something else I needed to do, to express. I loved creating my art and that felt really right but it wasn't the whole shebang. I was getting the same message whenever I had any kind of intuitive or psychic reading. It was bugging the hell out of me.
I am teaching two classes. One is called Creativity will Change your Life and the other is an Art Journaling class. These are in-person classes in Byron Bay, Australia. If you want to know the practical details just click on the name of the class.
From the beginning, teaching Creativity will Change your Life felt fantastic. It felt so right to be sharing what I know out of my own experience. I wasn't looking at how any one else had taught ( I wasn't aware of anyone teaching something similar.) I approached the class like I approach my art, trying to express the truth and trusting my intuitive hits. Maybe that is why it was so much fun?!
I think Creativity will Change Your Life is the class I wish I could have attended when I was beginning - or even later. A class that takes you on the actual journey of creativity. It isn't about skills like how to draw or paint, it is about how to go into the actual process of creativity. It might sound a bit crazy, but I think creativity is where we access another realm. It is an unfamiliar realm for a lot of people, but not unknown. It is where we go when we dream, or meditate. Maybe other times too. It is when we visit the wild natural realm of our inner selves.
We are so much bigger than we realise.
The realm is like a huge magical forest from a fairytale where anything can happen. And we can go there.
We knew how when we were children. We all knew how. And we can all go there now, whatever our age. We just have to be willing, and of course it is easier (and a bit less scary) with some guidance. A guide who has been there, and visits regularly. (Guess who?)
We will be using what I call an Ideas Journal in the class. But the emphasis will be on how to access our creativity rather than skills.
That is the Creativity Class. The Journaling Class is less about the actual process of creativity and more about stuff to try in playing with the creativity. Ways to bring that forest over to this realm (day to day life). We will be making art journals like I play with in this blog - using techniques I have written about -and more.
That feels like enough. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.
