Everyday creativity part 1

This course looks at how we see and relate to the simple everyday things around us through activities such as drawing, painting, collage, mixed-media and photography. We will practice slowing down our attention to look, make responses and appreciate the beauty of appearance. Weekly task sheets will give you a structure to work by along with loads of hints and tips to get you making images and developing your personal art practice.

"I loved loved doing my first art classes with you at Stroud College and will definitely be booking again as I never have time to practice. The response I have had from my oil painting of a glass bottle has been really encouraging - you have opened my eyes THANK YOU." 

Everyday creativity part 2

This course is aimed at those who have completed Everyday Creativity Part 1 or who have some experience with art practice. Themed project briefs, webinars and 1-1 tutorials will form the framework for you to explore materials, concepts, and themes to develop your art practice. Working with a group of likeminded people who are using the online platform as a space to share and celebrate the achievements of all will help you to see your work through the eyes of others and recognise you own unique creative voice.
