Free up your creativity, while tuning in to strength, calm and joy. In this experiential course, you have the opportunity to explore the sensory qualities of materials and processes of drawing, painting and collage.

You will be invited to play with colour, water, line, gesture, texture, layering and patterning to awaken the wisdom and pleasure of artmaking. You might scribble with the muscular vigour of oil pastels, meander lightly with watercolour, rip and reassemble tissue paper or drop doblets of thick acrylic onto a solid support. Each week, art explorations are linked with a theme, such as self-care, adaptability or interconnectedness.

Sally Swain initiated Art and Soul Creativity Coaching in 1993. A registered arts therapist, she has brought her unique practice into many contexts including cancer recovery centres, grief cafes, carers’ retreats, women’s conferences and arts festivals. She pioneered art therapy programs for residents, relatives and staff in aged care facilities. In this course Sally synthesises thirty years of Art and Soul practice into a new mode of learning for the NAS Short Courses Public Programs. Sally is highly regarded for her internationally best-selling book, Great Housewives of Art, which she conceived, painted and wrote in the 1980s and which remains popular to this day.
