Creating a visual diary combining elements of collage, writing, drawing, ’zen’ doodling as a means of personal self expression.

Design and create your own characterful headdresses inspired by stories, films and myths using environmentally friendly materials.

Programme

This 10 week course will focus on students creating a visual diary combining elements of collage, writing, drawing, ’zen’ doodling as a means of personal self expression and a space for experimentation; exploring themes from everyday life, as well as bigger hopes, dreams, and fears.

Fun and relaxing, collage is a wonderfully creative outlet, particularly for people who want to make art but don’t feel they have the skills or confidence for other endeavours. There are no rules! You can’t get it wrong and collaging, art journals are an easy way to help you connect with the creative self within.

The purpose of art journaling is not to make every page a masterpiece but to go with the flow, encourage playfulness and to enjoy experimenting with creativity in a personal, safe environment with the support of the tutor.

This self-directed process allows a freedom of expression that will build confidence and empower thinking.

Each week will begin with a quick 10 minute warm up collage exercise and then participants will create an image in response to a prompt or theme.

Prompts & Themes could include:-

Creating a Mandala, zentangle
A favourite quote
A favourite poem
Your Hand
What’s in my head

On completion participants will have started a beautiful personal journal and will have gained the skills to carry on with this expressive, mindful art form.
