One of the first things that students on our courses often tell us is “I’m not creative. I can’t even draw a straight line!” And yet, by the end of the workshop, they will have created something that is unique and beautiful and entirely of their own creation. Excited and inspired, they will tell their friends and families ‘WOW! Look what I made!” And that’s after only a few hours of guidance and encouragement.
Humans are born naturally creative but, like every other skill, some people have more “natural” talent than others. The good news is that, just as with musical or sport or language ability, everyone can discover and develop his or her inborn creativity. You don’t need to be an artist, or to have any special talent, to be creative. All you need is curiosity and the desire to explore something new. We will provide the rest!
Through our painting and cement courses, we aim to discover and nurture people’s natural artistic talents, no matter how insignificant they themselves think they are. We want you to walk away with that ‘WOW’ factor shining in your eyes, raring to go and ready to apply your new skills to your own unique projects.
“To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.” Kurt Vonnegut
