This is a 6-week series that teaches you to unleash your own unique style and creative flow. You can come to the whole series or single sessions.
It is suitable for both seasoned artists and beginners.
At Create or Die, we believe that creativity is an innately human trait, and that we all have an artist inside of us that has either been fed or starved. Come feed your creative soul with our wonderful teacher Gabbi Lancaster.
Chaos & Order
Intuitive mark making with mixed media – paint, charcoal & ink. Exploring chaos & freedom by responding to music and creative prompts; building a base of textural & tonal marks and then incorporating the figure. This encourages accidental & exciting compositions to surprise & delight.
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” Marilyn Monroe
• All art materials (& you can bring any of your own favourites if you like)

“Whilst studying Art & Anatomy at Art School in the 80’s, I realised we were learning much more than drawing and painting. It was an awakening and deepening of perception and sensitivity; a way of being.
You won’t just be learning ‘how to’ but will be tapping into your unique creativity to respond personally and with meaning to our models.
Using music and dynamic drawing exercises it is possible to make an instant connection, bypassing your analytical brain and moving into creative flow.
These moments of ‘flow’ or being ‘in the zone’ is where the magic happens and drawings emerge without effort. Being in these states enhances a sense of wellbeing and joy that filters into your daily life.
