No More Artist’s Block
This new ecourse is aimed at artists and creatives who are stuck, in a block, want to try something new or are looking for inspiration. The course is suitable for most creatives no matter what their preference or medium. The prompts are more in the style of an art and design course and not just – here’s a photo, what would you do with it. We are exploring themes in relation to art, textiles, printing, ceramics, fashion and so on, whatever your discipline is. So each person can take their own artistic journey for each prompt.
It is ideal for all levels, even beginners and includes ideas that can be used for drawing, painting, felt, textiles, digital work and more.
Each month, you will receive an email with a theme and any of the following
resources – such as artists or books to look at
Suggestions for materials
It’s up to you what you do, how you approach the theme, how much to do. If you want to treat it as a mini-course where you work for a month to produce a piece of work, or just a few minutes here and there.
Tutor guidance and access is given throughout – although it is limited to half hour sessions per month apart from the written guidance given.
You will also be able to upload work from the course onto a special closed fb page – where we will discuss work, what arose from the theme. If enough people are interested, there could be opportunities to exhibit work, there could also be opportunities for group work. You will be taking part in an art community.
You will receive notes, guidance, you will also receive a mini booklet with each monthly inspirational prompt to keep for future reference.
The inspirational prompts run from September each year to the end of June, that’s 10 prompts in all.
