Wellspring is a six-week summer school focussing on the power of creativity for self-care, starting on July 1st. We’ll look at how you can learn to use your creative time in ways that can be beneficial to your mental wellbeing. In a series of 25 detailed lessons, we will explore topics around the creative self, challenge you to look at how you work and what blocks you may have, consider how and why art can be so good for your soul, and make lots of fun projects along the way. Plus, you’ll learn more about how and why art can be therapeutic from mindfulness and art therapy experts.

The aim of this course is to give you tools, techniques, and exercises to take away that you can apply to all your creative processes. We encourage you to create with what you have, using the prompts and ideas put forward in the lessons. We are not suggesting you make any purchases for this course but access to a printer would be advantageous as we’ll be supplying some printable content for you to use. Some of the lessons focus on art journaling so you may wish to have a journal to play with as we go. However, we’re kicking off with several ideas of how to create your own bespoke journal using basic supplies, so there is really no need to go out and buy one. Most lessons will be using mixed media basics such as acrylic paints, pens, stamps, stencils and the like. Some use more specific mediums, which include: watercolour paints, air-dry clay, coloured pencils, and a shrine kit (or you use an old sardine can). We have two scrapbooking classes in the mix, but you can adapt the ideas using mixed media supplies instead if you don’t own scrapbooking papers and embellishments.
