Wednesdays 10 AM-12.30 PM in Studio 1


Each week, you will playfully explore colours, patterns and variety of mixed media techniques, finding relaxation in the creative process.
ABSOLUTELY no previous experience or artistic ability required.

Course cost includes ALL material costs and four projects to take home.


Over this eight-week course, artist Soma Datta will help you learn:
• a variety of mixed media art techniques such as resist, stencilling, mark-making, pattern-making and layering
• how to embrace spontaneity and celebrate happy accidents though creative play
• how to maintain colour vibrancy in paintings by following basic colour theory guidelines
• easy intuitive art techniques for personal expression, such as painting to music and painting blindfolded
• how to let go and find relaxation in the creative process rather than focusing on the outcome.

You also go home with completed artworks and notes on mixed-media intuitive art techniques so you can use your newly acquired skills to find relaxation when needed.
