I need $upport to do this: Can I make art? Workshop Series
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. We will remember the importance of connection and how art can help us slow down and look inwards.
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.
