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.
Introducing the artist in you
3 full days
You may think you cannot draw and paint. You may have never tried it, but would like to. Here, you will have the opportunity to find, recognize and explore your own special creativity. This is a fairly intensive introduction to explore new ways to experience the world around and inside you - devised to enable you to continue to build on these three days for many years to come.
Each of us have a creativity which is as unique as we are, and which is valuable, valid and important in our lives. ‘Finding the Artist in You’ is not about producing Great Art. It is about gaining tools to through which anyone can fulfill their artistic aspirations. It is also about discovering and enjoying the creative process. And who knows - you may just surprise yourself!
Building an online presence
3 full days
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.
