Exploring Your Shades of Grey Class

 Saturday 2nd May, 2020


Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.

Danny Kaye


Have fun exploring the darker side of art materials using pencils, charcoals and ink. In this class we will explore the shades of grey (and colour!) in our lives. We will also use art exercises to see beyond the extremes of black and white and be curious about the middle ground and beyond. Art methods can provide a deep and powerful means of expression that transcends words. Learn art techniques to enhance your self-awareness and build your self-care tool kit.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Experience a range of art exercises for self-reflection 
  • Build skills in use of art methods
  • Use ink, charcoals, paint and pastels in structured art exercises
  • Reflect in ways that are comfortable for you
  • Work in the safe environment of a small group

Methods will include:

  • Interactive presentations
  • Large group discussions
  • Pair and small group discussions
  • Experiential art exercises 
  • Practice with ink, charcoals, pastels and paint 
  • Reflection opportunities for application of methods
