Creative Leap: If you can write, you can draw.
Do something fun this summer, develop your creativity and artistic skills with a month long drawing focussed course. Creative Leap is an alternative online art course designed to get people drawing, using handwriting and the letters as link. I created this program in 2016, and developed two Creative Leap courses using the concept of handwriting and the alphabet as basic prompt to draw and create from.
This course is offered for the last time in its current format, to include four bigger weekend art projects. The weekend projects are exploring art techniques and mediums and are complimentary to the 26 letter based mini projects.
The course runs from 1 to 31 July, with an additional four weeks to catch up.
Registration closes on 30 June. Information and sign up: www.explorecolour.com
I am giving away two free places on the Creative Leap course. The winners will be announced on my Instagram account on 30 June. https://www.instagram.com/estemacleod/
In May I exhibited in New York at the Blue Print Surface Design and Print Show. There are a number of projects and the pipeline, collaborations with homeware companies and publishers. More on this in the months to come.
