Imagine the joy of gifting a present to a loved one that includes a mini piece of art created by your hands and imagination.
Did you know “It’s scientifically proven that creating with your hands can ease anxiety. When we use our hands to make, serotonin and endorphins are released into our bloodstream, which work to reduce our cortisol (stress) levels. The neural networks in our brain are rewired, causing them to function differently from how they functioned before using our hands, a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity.” – GamePlan-a.com
You will learn a few basic collage concepts along with some colour basics, elements & principles of composition and creating. Light refreshments & all materials and supplies will be provided to keep you energised and your creativity flowing along with gentle guidance to help your creative flow get started.
