Who is this course for: If you feel you need to bring moments of calm to your life, improve levels of health and wellbeing then come and create some art! This course covers the basics and you will be gently led through a series of activities ☺
Previous knowledge or experience: No previous knowledge or experience required, just lots of enthusiasm an desire to learn and have fun
How will I learn: This course focuses on experimentation and how embracing “mistakes” can create amazing opportunities. You will learn by watching a demonstration, this will be done step by step and then you will follow those steps with Fatima's advice along the way too. You will also learn by doing, playing and creating wonderful mistakes and make them work with a few tricks. Part of the learning process will be evaluating your own work and giving feedback to and receiving feedback from Fatima on each session. This process will help you grow in confidence as well as communication skills while discovering your learning and art style. Fatima will provide images on each session. You are welcome to use your own photos, however, try to stick to the topic/subject so you can follow the demos
How will I be assessed: As part of the first session Fatima will ask you a few questions to assess you level and understand what your expectations are on the course. This is to make sure you get the most out of it!
What shall I bring: A material list will be provided by the library on booking or sent by email by Fatima. Please request by email Fatima on: email@example.com
