Where and When
Thursdays 1pm – 3pm Starting 9th June 2022
Studio, Red Brick Building, Glastonbury, BA6 9FT
About the sessions
The course will take you on an inward journey of self discovery through the powerful medium of art. Explore the mind and soul and its context in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment. A journey which can be as structured or personalised and free flowing as you like.
Topics such as free flow art, mystical creatures, painting from dreams and self portrait can reveal hidden depths about you you never knew existed and tap into aspects or themes of your life and personality. Although this will be provided as a framework for exploration there is no obligation to follow the set course materials and individual ideas are encouraged to be brought to the group. The ultimate aim of the course is to develop self directing artists with a long term view of hosting an exhibition
Expected benefits include greater self awareness, calming of the mind, a greater sense of meaning and understanding in the world as-well as hopefully a new sense of direction on both a personal and creative basis.
Enjoy the results of your work and build a portfolio.

Free flow art
We release and exhibit whatever wants to come out and be expressed. We work off imagination and inspiration, where the brush takes us and tap into instinctual use of colour. Get as creative, expressive and free flow as you like!
7th July – 28th July 2022 – 4 week project
Mythical Creatures and Nature
Whether it’s a new friend, a creature with divine gifts or attributes you wish to draw upon, something that reflects an element of your personality or where you are on your journey I guarantee you’ll love the results! Just go with your instinct!
4th August – 25th August – 4 week project
Whether you’re feeling adventurous and wish to go for a nude self portrait, wish to draw something that reflects you, draw from a picture or from your mind, express and explore yourself in a new light. What else will appear on your picture?
1st Sep – 22nd Sep – 4 week project
Painting from dreams
Have you had any monumental dreams recently, a recurring dream perhaps, or wish to combine several dream themes on one piece? Make it challenging drawing completely from memory and feeling or use other images to copy if required.

13th Oct – 3rd Nov 4 week Project
The sacred feminine, a liberating and expressive piece with lots of opportunity to get abstract. What does your interpretation of the brief look like for you? A flower? Something unexpected? Your experience of the feminine? You might be surprised what comes out.
10th Nov – 1st Dec – 4 week Project
How do you experience the masculine within you? What does it look like for you in your world and life? Alternatively express some masculine energy you would like more of in your life.
8th Dec – 29th Dec – 4 Week Project
Is there one key animal that calls to you? Perhaps several? What’s the interplay? Where do they manifest in your life? What other elements or facets do they sit amongst? Lets get Shamanic – Calling all Power Animal Lovers out there! Let them speak!
5th Jan – 26th Jan 2023 – 4 week Project
Where is your safe place? Is this a place you can escape to you in your mind, what elements exist there? What is the feel, the sounds, noises, smells and creatures that surround you? Are there any protective guides? What is the atmosphere? Think safe, think protective, let’s create!
2nd Feb – 23rd Feb – 4 Week Project
Only Smarties Have the Answer
