Workshop 1 - World of Whimsy
This course will run for 6 weeks with a full length video & pdf file per week!
Course skill level: beginner & intermediate
Course fee: $65
week 1 - 28th feb 2009: composition, layout, design of your piece
week 2 - 7th march 2009: how to draw main elements of your piece & inspiration

Videos can be downloaded throughout the 6 weeks, don't worry if you're not available on Saturday's; all videos remain online for the duration of the course.
Your pdfs will contain both technical guidance and will look into positive healing and self acceptance practises based on the teachings of Marshall Rosenberg (nonviolent communication, looking at feelings and needs), Eckhart Tolle (the power of now) and Byron Katie (the work).
During the course, the aim is; learning new art techniques, having fun, getting in touch with your inner awesomeness and remembering that there is no such thing as failure! Only several ways that you don't want to do art!! (Thomas Edison , the man who invented the light bulb, said after he was asked if he wasn't discouraged about the amount of times he kept failing: "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." - Now that's the spirit!)
Note: once you have paid and signed up for the course, you will be sent an in depth welcome pack which lists materials and other details of the course.
