Learn and Do
Join us on a journey, starting with the cave paintings in France and ending with Bridget Riley’s painted stripes. We’ll hop through the centuries and decades, learning interesting facts about the artists along the way. What did Michelangelo think about being landed the job of painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel? Who were the Fauves and how have they influenced art today? After flying through history, we will all create an artwork influenced by one of the artists we learned about.
Think you aren’t good at drawing? It doesn’t matter! Some of us have put up barriers due to a bad experience with art making. This lesson will help to overcome that. Do you love making art? Great! Perhaps you will learn something new and can then repeat that back home.
It has been proven that creating art relieves stress, focuses the mind, encourages us to become creative problem solvers and so much more.
The workshop is divided into two 30 minute sessions: Learn and Do. We learn. And then we make.
Who is this workshop for?
Everyone! But to narrow that down, here is a list:
– Team Building Groups
– Businesses who observe Mental Awareness Week and are interested in bringing something new and fun into the workplace
– Special events (birthday parties, hen parties, just because parties)
– Educational events (especially for those teachers that might not have a good grasp of art and art history due to the other hundreds of things you are teaching in class).

My first event will take place in February and I have been burning the midnight oil planning, designing, thinking, and writing about this event and for this event. Two months ago I officially listed this effort with Companies House and ever since that day, the foundations have been forming.
2020 is going to be a big year for me. The exhibition was the first idea to land in my head and grow into big ideas about it being an installation piece. Soon after Crash Course formed and I had to grab onto it and not let it go. I have had to move around my work commitments to make way for these two new things. I am both excited and daunted. I am curious about how these two ideas will grow and that is winning out over any uncertainty.
What are your big, fun, and scary plans for 2020?
