Art for the Health of it!In this class John will utilise the amazing health benefits of art practice and contextual study of art in general. Positively invigorating visual challenges to de-stress, focused calm to help balance our mental health, bring our thoughts into focusing on the now. Appreciate natural beauty and the mood and atmosphere we can create in our work! See if you can benefit from the positive power of aesthetics and making artworks that look and feel right!
Sometimes the pace will be easy and relaxing. Sometimes it will give gentle challenges to increase our focus through processes. Learn and practice techniques used by successful artists and be stimulated by stories attached to the artwork we study and the artists who created them.
During the length of the course there will be exercises in drawing for cognition, art for fine-motor skills, memory drawing to focus our recall, creating strategies to improve these areas. Most importantly benefit from the creative zone that this class offers!
John promises to resurrect old favourites such as Folk Art from around the world, Sumi-e painting, Chinese Calligraphy, as well as Paint and Sip and the Old Masters Academy. For beginners, intermediates and advanced!
The time is now to revitalise our creative powers in the very widest range of materials possible or simply with whatever paper and pens are at hand.
