Sue Kaplans Creativity Classes CLASSES BEGIN FEBRUARY 2023
Join me in my restorative and liberating classes to ignite your creative spirit!
I offer classes to adults and teens in two studios as well as giving an online zoom class. I also give private consultations and facilitate art workshops.
I am also a zen coach, using art as a therapeutic tool.
As an artist and art teacher, with many years’ experience, I see art as an anchor in a very choppy sea; helping with focus, staying present and giving you a voice that is unique to your narrative. It also helps give meaning to your life in this confusing world. It can be an escape and a homecoming.
My classes allow you to continually evolve your practice where you have the time to experience the unfolding of a process and not be reduced to prescription or formula, allowing you to reach your fullest expression in a safe space with an experienced person to guide you. I teach you to look and think a bit differently, so that the purpose of art isn’t just to master a skill, but to find peace during the process as well.
Initially I share a number of techniques and media using various mark making exercises, giving you the tools to develop your own creative language. During this time, I will supply the materials. I build into the classes many different themes and ideas that we work with such as: botanicals/portraits/figures/landscapes/ abstract ideas and some contemporary processes too. I am also happy to give a list of materials you can use.
Drop in R380
Monthly/termly options @350 per session.
Times: Wednesday’s 6-9

- All black and white photocopies are R1.50 per page (A4)
- Your course teacher/facilitator is responsible for providing refreshments during courses.
- Please do not use the tea/coffee belonging to PCAC.
