We welcome Kirstin McCulloch - Lillibean Designs to studio36A as she presents 'Discovering your creative Squeak -Tips and tricks to exploring your creative soul' - 10 week course.
Held on a Wednesday evening, May 4th being our first week & ending Wednesday evening July 4th.
Have you ever held in your hands a beautiful creation that some wonderful artist has made and said, “I wish I could make something like this…but I don’t have a creative bone in my body!”
Can I tell you that for nearly 35 years I said exactly the same thing!
For a long time, I thought that my dreams of being creative were just that – impractical dreams.
Along my life’s journey I would have moments (or squeaks as I call them) where I would think - “Maybe, just maybe I could be creative” but then I would tell myself to stop being crazy and move on.
But the squeaks became louder and more insistent and after a few years of playing and learning and listening to the squeaks, I sold my first painting and now seven years since I first I am a full time artist.
I believe that everyone can be creative in some way and ‘Discovering your Creative Squeak’ is ten-week workshop that is a gentle and safe way to explore creative play and invite creativity into your everyday life.
This is a beginner’s workshop for people who want to start exploring their creativity. It is not for people who are looking to learn drawing or painting techniques – although we cover some of the basics of these principles; this is not the main focus of this course. (However if this is something you wish to learn please let us know – we may have a more suitable course for you later)
We look at some of the reasons we stopped being creative in the first place, we have some fun projects where we collage, smoosh paint and get our hands dirty, play like we did when we were kids.
You will have access to a private Facebook group that along with your fellow course members: a safe space where you can ask questions, have support or just vent your creative frustrations.
And at the end of the ten weeks you will walk away with a sense of freedom that you too can be creative, you own journal of work, as well as a book filled with notes and exercises that you can do over and over again - whenever you feel like it.
Materials: You will be sent a list of items that you will need for the course, however they should not exceed $15 - $20 if you don’t already have them at home. Beautiful canvas & leatherbound A5 Journals can be purchased from studio36A for your 10 week journey ahead!
**Payment arrangements can be made through studio36A or purchased in full on Eventbrite.
