Creative sessions

50


50 per session - Virtual OK

Playful and supportive creative sessions in which you will learn new techniques, develop your artistic skills and have fun. The aim is not to create a 'pretty picture' or masterpiece, but to explore different ways of making marks, applying colour, expressing what you think/feel. Experimentation and exploration are the biggest goals in these sessions, which allows your to go deeper and discover more about yourself, your preferences and your inherent talent.

I offer these sessions wherever I reside or travel to, and online - in groups of 1 to 6 people. I will specify specific materials or tools before each sessions - these include mud, watercolour paints, food colouring, coffee, paint brushes, old makeup brushes, food packaging, pens, used paper, old newspapers, art paper, simple writing paper, found pieces of wood, and other different materials - some of them unconventional or unexpected.

Training & Qualifications


I am an artist and workshop facilitator who work in mixed media, watercolours, ink, installation art, land art, photographic art, digital art, performance art, conceptual art. My theme and message guides the techniques I use, and I explore and experiment with my mediums. I find this to be the best way to uncover your creativity and often delivers unexpected and wonderful results!

About Janet Botes

In a professional capacity I am an artist, graphic designer, illustrator and workshop facilitator, and offer creative coaching. I am also a land artist - creating ephemeral art in the landscape, and s...ite-specific installations in public spaces. Some of these extend into the realm of my personal and spiritual life as prayers, rituals and ceremonies for Earth Healing, animals, Spirit and connection. I love hiking, camping, gardening, plant-based nutrition, spiritual development, long walks on the beach, forest bathing, swimming, and working on creative collaborations. I enjoy connecting with like-minded people and helping other people to uncover and develop their own inherent creative talents. I'm an explorer, a Fire-Mountain creator type (https://sacredbusiness.com.au/not-creators-made-equal) and aim to help make the world a better place for all beings. show more
