Art Wonderers Autumn 2021

 

Hi there,  if 2020 taught us anything, it is that the world needs art and that making art is good for you! 
In 2016 I pioneered Drawing with the Wondering Artist, as an online drawing course launched via skype.
 In  2020, the Art Wonderers became a way of life. 

The Art Wonderers gather, from a multiplicity of spaces around the globe.  Each group of Wonderers uses the grid to get off the grid, to wonder, explore and make stuff together. The course takes on a life and energy of its own fuelled by the curiosity, input and mutual support of everyone there.

Want to do something creative?   Do you have a dream to write a book, start a painting, make a coat, design a garden?  Or perhaps you are wanting to think about your life and the world in a new way? Or you are on a creative path but just need to check-in for a bit of extra support now and then?

Everyone is creative: discover what kind of creative person you are: scattershot creativity vs routine? Structured vs organic? Methodical or intuitive? Haptic or visually minded? This will determine how you like to make stuff, and also help you find new ways to develop your own creativity.


3 Principles to live by during the course:
 Risk and fail often.  The Art Wonderers course is NOT about achieving perfect likenesses. Fast forward failure as a way of learning.  Rediscover that child like joy of making stuff with your hands again. 
Play.  Lose yourself in the joy of your own process. Learn how to make compositions that sing!
Enjoy creative community.  Share your process and chat and collaborate with fellow creatives from across the world. Explore and discover how other artists have seen the world and made art, as a way of enlarging and enlivening your own.

Course starts 16 October 2020.
Autumn offer: 300 USD 
Limited places available.
Please contact me for details. 

 

Here is what a couple of the Wonderers had to say about 6 weeks of coming together as fellow creatives, making and connecting through the world wide web.

Love that it offered opportunity for everyone from beginners to advanced & experienced artists… You could just start where you are and take it as it goes.
I loved the international component. That added the most amazing dimensions—global context encompassing different nations, geographies, climates, time zones and perspectives—so wonderful.  To encounter ....... strangers on the other side of the globe; to discover commonalities, respect differences and glimpse particular passions….  Fantastic.

 Can’t recommend highly enough – just do it!
