Building Creative Powers

For the last few years I've been taking part if various e-courses to assist in building my creative powers ranging from painting to jewelry to journaling. The course that keeps drawing me back in is the Experimental ARt e-course with Amelia Critchlow. Click Here to register & to find out more about it.

I believe I've taken this course 4 or 5 times and each time I gain something new. Amelia is a wonderful nurturing guide on this journey and I highly recommend it to matter your experience or level- there is something for you!

One of the things I enjoy most is that it is self paced yet Amelia gives weekly "homework" to keep us focused. Yes, I know what you might is busy...... but you never are made to feel guilty about missing something here or are always able to go back and finish up whenever. Being that I've done this course a number of times, I can now decide which lessons to focus on. I've learned so much each time.

I think the best part about this course is that Amelia is dedicated to giving each and every one of her students positive feedback. If you chose, you can post your images to the Flickr group Amelia sets up and then she, as well as other class members, provide encouragement. Just wonderful!

I will be making periodic posts about my Experimental Art adventures so I hope you will join me on all this creative fun!
