Use words and watercolours to express feelings and emotions which arise from consideration of nature.
Poetic writing and art are powerful mediums. This unique course will give you the opportunity to express yourself through words and watercolours with a focus on themes of nature. This could be seasons, flowers, trees, beaches, or a favourite landscape which has meaning for you. We will use words and watercolours to express feelings and emotions which arise from these spaces, by creating poetic and visual imagery. At the end of the day you will have used both words and watercolours to create atmosphere and feeling, in expressions which are uniquely yours.
During this course we will cover techniques for composing poetic writing, then the writing after which the participants will have the opportunity to read their work followed by feedback. They will then work on illustrating their work, followed by sharing and feedback. The process will then be reversed, with drawing impressions followed by poetic writing linked to the drawings.
Suitable for beginner poets and painters and well as those more experienced in one or other medium looking for a fresh path to expression.

I am an artist, poet, short story writer, published author and art teacher. I have always been fascinated by the linking of poetry with art and so this course is designed to give the participants the chance to extend their ideas visually as well as poetically.
