If you have ever had a burning desire to grow your imagination or set an intention to imagine something different for your art, then this is a stellar place to start.
Have you ever wanted to explore your own creative potential? Have you developed technical skills but wish you could cement your ideas to match them? Perhaps it’s time to learn to use your visual mind to access, strengthen and grow your unique possibilities? The Visual Mind and the Imagination is a live, lecturer-led, six-week online course where you are invited to explore concepts and build-out your own ideas via your chosen medium across any visual art practice including painting or sculpture, digital art, creative writing, or even app development.
Kelly-Ann Denton leads you through the neuroscience of imagination, the visual mind, visual mapping, metaphor, visualisations, meditation, psychology, curiosity and actually learning to see new connections, preparing you for a personal and transformative journey into your own imagination. Each week she presents new skills that either generate imaginative processes or remove blocks, extending an invitation to explore and expand in unique and personal ways. Students are encouraged to share ideas and support individual growth and the diverse concepts the group will contribute to a whole.
