Artful Mind Sessions
(c) Lucy Perry 2017
These creativity based sessions are designed for non-artists and artists alike to explore art as a fun restorative process - take time out to be creative and enjoy looking and making. Sessions introduce all the materials and techniques needed to engage and have a go! You will create lots of pieces of work in each session from small warm up sketches, to larger 'finished' pieces.
Monthly Artful Mind sessions are no longer available in Thorpe Morieux but can be booked for your venue/group.
This is what partcipants have said:
'I have absolutely loved the art - something I did not think I would!'
'I would now love to explore the artful mind side further because this is a neglected aspect of my life.'
"I enjoyed the freedom to explore"
"I found all of it enjoyable as I hadn't explored art in this way since leaving school."
"An enjoyable time with a nice space created - I loved working with others, being free to work and having Lucy to discuss points/ideas with."
"Drawing the 'journey' I enjoyed making marks quickly and not over thinking things."
"Helpful and encouraging remarks"
"Really enjoyed it!"
What to expect at an Artful Mind Workshop
Warm up: We usually start with some drawing excercises to warm up and get rid of that big white piece of paper!
The workshop will focus on a particular theme and technique. We will explore the materials and work towards one or more outcomes that reflect out theme...this could be texture, journeys, grids, nature, etc....
Techniques and materials may include Brusho watercoours, wax resist, pen and ink, printmaking, collage, charcoal, etc....
Each workshop closes with an opportunity to reflect on the processes experienced to allow you to acknowledge your achievements and highilght areas you may want to explore further.
