Creativity and art courses
Free up, get creative!
You may think you cannot draw or paint. Maybe you’ve never tried it, but would like to, or you may want to bring new inspiration to your day job or find creative solutions to whatever challenges you face. Either way, this is not so much about the results you get, as giving yourself the opportunity to break through your own barriers and experience something new—something that has always been inside you, but that you may not have accessed or activated. On a Creative Juices creativity workshop, you can explore your own unique creative potential in a positive and supportive environment. Suitable for beginners, non-artists and practicing artists alike, it provides a wonderful space in which to relax and find new ways to experience the world around and inside you—something you can build on for many years to come. Discover the tools you need to bring out your latent artistic gifts, whatever they may be, and find ways to enjoy the creative process while accessing a deeper part of yourself. Above all, though, this is a workshop to enjoy! Each can work at his or her own pace as part of a small group, with plenty of personal attention and guidance.
Group workshops and holiday courses
Interested in arranging something special for a group? Contact me and we will create something incredible. We can provide anything from a day or weekend in Vancouver to a 7-day holiday course in San Jose del Cabo, where you can explore the power and purpose of your creativity—and enjoy a holiday in the sun! This is a workshop extraordinaire, extending Creative Juices to a whole week of creative exploration, passion and fulfillment. On a typical day, we have a leisurely breakfast followed by a three-hour session of guided/facilitated creative processes. Lunch is followed by some leisure time on the beach and maybe a local excursion. After an early dinner, we continue in the cool of the evening for another hour or two of creative activities, and then enjoy the nightlife! Holiday courses are a powerful way to activate and tap into your creative essence, often yielding the most amazing and unexpected results—from work-related breakthroughs to relationship insights and more. These courses also enable you to make the creative process an integral part of your life, transforming the way you think, solve problems and make decisions. Away from all the distractions of work and home life, you can establish a new way forward—and keep it going when you return home.
Drawing from life
The human form has always fascinated artists and, for many, it is the basis for all drawing. It is as challenging as it is rewarding and enlightening. It hones the artist's hand-eye coordination and, in its infinite diversity, it is always new.
The human body's complex outer structure reveals so much more than shapes and textures. There is much to explore below the surface—bones, muscles, moods, feelings, consciousness and a life lived, all of which make each of us unique. Life drawing can help put us in touch with the magnificence that exists in all human beings.
Life drawing takes the artist through a fascinating process of observation and editing, feeling and application, each in a unique way. It’s a never-ending process—always exciting and a valuable tool in the growth of any artist.

What is it like being a life-drawing model?
"Modelling for Lewis Evans and his life drawing class was a great experience. Lewis and his students were a great group to work with, everyone was very professional and respectful. Lewis has a fun teaching style and came up with all sorts of different activities for the students, making the sessions very fun to be a part of. "

Life drawing has always been a central discipline in art, and has gone through many changes over the centuries. This course is designed to show anyone (artists and non-artists alike) that they can get a lot of satisfaction and learning from discovering their own way of doing life drawing. The goal is to discover each student’s unique way of going about it, establish the validity and value of each unique approach, and to inspire breakthroughs and realizations along the way.
At the end of the course, students get a certificate of completion. The final session is designed to help each student decide how they will continue their practice and develop further.

Building an online presence

Larry Page (Google) once said to a friend of mine that 99% of websites don’t do anything. Nowadays, the Internet is often the primary source of customers for many businesses. Whether a business is large or small, the challenges are similar in a world where there is so much Internet ‘noise’.
This course introduces website-building and associated social media and email tools using a Wordpress system that's specifically designed to get conversions. This is one of the most cost-effective ways to achieve an online presence and to acquire and manage leads, especially for small businesses.
The course is a primer for using the system and for developing structures that work for each student’s requirements. Those who choose to buy the system will have ongoing support from the supplier and constant updates and new tools as they are developed.

Based on my successful brand development course, BRAND NEW, students will discover what brand really is and how it works. The course is interactive, with various processes that involve group discussion and production of ideas and material between sessions.
Before the course starts, students are sent a needs assessment form, which helps them to start thinking about their brand and gives me an idea of where they are with their business so that I can tailor it to their needs as we go.
At the end of the course, students will have all the tools to put in place a powerful brand for their business.
