The first of the SASA Winter Workshops for 2018 took place at the Peter Clarke Art Centre on Saturday May 26.
Gabriella Kaplan introduced us to a whole new world of mixed media and a whole new way of looking at art. She encouraged us to use and experiment with the most amazing array of materials, to – in her own words – “Explore with curiosity; Be open to the unexpected; Reconnect with yourself; See with new eyes; Still the judges within; Trust the process; Rediscover intuitive responses; Unblock the creativity within”
Gabriella gently guided us through the process, allowing each new step to emerge naturally, bringing out the best in all of us.
The morning was about self exploration – where you are and where you have come from – and culminated in each person’s presentation of “self” in a painting and in words.
A very relaxing and non-judgemental workshop. Many thanks to Gabriella for presenting it and to Irene Oxley for organising it.
