What is the structure of the classes?

We believe each individual is at their own artistic level. What makes our classes unique is that each person is allowed to progress through the curriculum at their own speed. We do not do one activity for all students in a class. This also allows you to explore different mediums to your own liking. If you have a keen interest in clay, they can venture into statues or ceramics, if you have a keen interest in painting, then you could progress to oil painting.

Our Approach with Adults

Enabling and teaching art is one of my greatest passions in life.

When I was in High School I had an art teacher that constantly broke me down and never motivated me to be an artist. In Gr 11 I started feeling despondent and a tiny lie crept into my heart; “Maybe I am not an artist” I started struggling to follow my natural flow and a block started sliding in between myself and my creative self.

One day while doing a workshop that was, not art related at all, a woman walked up to me took both my hands and said: “I sense a true heart of an artist in you”
It was such a profound moment and confirmed to me true calling as a creative being – to create.
Today I do not teach how to be creative, I believe we are all creative. I will show you how to let yourself be creative. Creativity is our true nature and creative blocks are unnatural.  We ourselves are creations. And we, in turn, are meant to continue creativity by being creative ourselves. Once you open yourself to creativity you will experience an exciting and renewed energy through your whole life.

All ages are welcome.  All you need a willingness to learn, explore and make mistakes. I will be here to guide you along – no matter what level of expertise you have.

Unblock your creativity.

  • Stop telling yourself, “It’s too late”
  • Stop telling yourself it is just your ego whenever you yearn for a more creative life.
  • Stop telling yourself that dreams don’t matter, that they are only dreams and that you should be more sensible.
  • Stop telling yourself that creativity is a luxury and that you should be grateful for what you’ve got.
