Can I make art? Workshop Series

A four-part, participatory, online workshop series exploring ways to feel more comfortable making and connecting with art

About these workshops

This fully participatory workshop series is about strengthening your relationship with art through accessible art-making exercises and talking together. This is not a ‘How To Draw’ workshop, but a ‘How can I feel more comfortable to draw?’ workshop.

Over 4 weeks, we will draw inspiration from practices by contemporary artists, doing simple drawing and writing activities to change our perceptions of what it means to “make art”. During these weekly 2-hour workshops, we will talk about our relationship with art, whether positive or negative, and practice art from within the comfort of our own homes without fear of someone peering over our shoulders as we make.

This workshop is for anyone who struggles with perfectionism, battles with creative blocks, feels isolated by the art world, or wants to overcome their insecurities with art-making so they can say Yes, I am allowed and I can make art. 

Absolutely no prior artistic training required, only an openness to exploring your own creative abilities.

"This workshop has been like a warm hug, not only for my art practice but also for my soul. Throughout the four weeks, I have felt more and more excited for the upcoming classes, and it has helped me relax and connect with art in a different way. I believe finding a safe space to share practices and concerns is crucial for a nice and long-lasting relationship with art, and this workshop has successfully proven that. Zoya is such a thoughtful and talented facilitator; it couldn't have been better."

Participants describe this workshop as:
A hug

"This course helped me to get the pencil in my hand moving and to not be held back by the sometimes overthinking brain! Simple techniques were learnt which really did help with creating!"

— Mel

"I think it would be good to emphasise how supportive it is. There is lots of guidance and support for those too scared to start, but enough freedom for those scared of structure."

— Katy

"The workshop series was really helpful for kicking my perfectionism up the arse. It loosened me up enough to just get into it and make some art. It gave me lots to think about, especially regarding the power of limitations, chaos, randomness and of losing control/inhibitions when making art."

— Raina
