We start our classes with conceptual development exercises. We use collage as a way to explore different modes of thinking and to find out what your style is and what type of concepts you want to explore. This loosens up the mind to creative ways of thinking. From here we will move on to perceptual development with drawing exercises that help you draw what you see, not what you think you see. We start with simple shapes and move to more complex things. They all are based on the same principles. Even if you decide to go into abstract art, your ability to draw from the real will show and inform your mark making. Towards the end of class we bring the two aspects together. You have a better ideas you want to explore and have worked on the skills to portray it. We help you bring this together in an artwork. The goal of one art class is not necessarily to have a perfect artwork at the end, but to come into a way of operating that helps you move towards a more satisfying form of self-expression. Therefore we advise you to do the class as many times as you feel necessary. Each time you will have a clearer vision of the outcome you want and will uncover another aspect of your creativity.
Alouette and I are artist and co-founders of a little creative consultancy company, Imaginarium: the Studio. We specialise in helping unlock creative ideas and helping people realize what they are capable of. There are two main aspects we focus on in our art classes, conceptual development and perceptual skills. Conceptual development helps with discovering and fleshing out the ideas art are based on. Perception skills are the bases for taking in reality and putting it down on a surface. Together these two aspects can take your creativity to the next level and make you an artist with something to offer the world.
We always have coffee, tea and sometimes wine available according to the need of the moment.
We will have old magazines, scissors, paper, pencils and pastels available to start with. Depending on what medium you want…
The classes and workshops we offer are held in the studio and lounge of our apartment in Green Point. We have truly made our space a place to relax, enjoy beauty, and get creative.
