Event description

Description

This is the first session of the IGNITE: A Course in Creativity Course. Whilst these sessions can stand alone we do recommend that you join in with the entire four week course. There is a discounted price for booking onto all the sessions.

This course is led by Melissa King (Art Psychotherapist) and Jennifer Samuel-Bryan (Professional Artist). Our aim over the four weeks is to take you from a position of hesitancy in your creative practice, no matter what it is, into a stronger, more confident place where you can find new energy to be creative. We will do this through group discussion, various hands on activities including visual art, sculpture, creative writing and movement. The course is intended for anyone who feels stuck in their creative practice and could do with a strong and supportive group around them to help regain momentum. All creative practices are welcome.

Materials needed: We recommend that you bring a notebook/journal to document your insights, advice given by others and any other notes you will find helpful to look back on. However, this is not essential. All other materials will be provided.

Week 1: Reacting and Impermanence - letting go of ownership

In this session we will look at how our creativity is challenged and improved by either relinquishing or sharing ownership of our creativity. Together we will work towards helping you to approach your creative practice with a different outlook and hopefully get you to experiment with new processes and ideas.

Week 2: Facing the “I Can’t”

This week you will have a chance to look at the ideas and thoughts that are holding back your creativity. We will use writing, sculpture and painting to explore and express our hesitancies and doubts. Please be assured that this is a safe space and we will not ask you to share anything you are uncomfortable with. We are here to help each other release our creativity.

Week 3: Confidence and Self-Expression

It does what it says on the tin: this week is all about increasing your confidence and to help you to express yourself fully. We will work on large art pieces, help each other to present to the group and start to encourage all the creative ideas we’ve put on hold for so long.

*

Week 4: Focusing and Reinvigorating your Ideas – “Let’s get this done”

For the final session we will focus on personal projects that we have long wanted to work on but have been held back either by preciousness over our work, our inner gremlins or by lack of confidence. You will be encouraged to talk about these projects, get feedback and advice, visualise the end result and to make a start on it.
