Joyous Dots: The most relaxing technique ever!



If you want to relax and make something beautiful at the same time, dotting joyously is for you. I'm hooked myself and look forward to sharing this lovely technique with you; any excuse to immerse myself in another joyous dots experience. Painting with dots is nothing new; think Aboriginal art, pointillism and mandalas. It's so much fun that it's no surprise it has been around for centuries and is still going strong. The problem is where to start. That's is where this class comes in. You will learn how to prepare your paints, use the tools given and find and make your own to make your work truly yours. You will also learn how to use the templates to make pre-made designs and then adapt them to suit your own ideas. You can also use my blue prints to make your own templates for many a relaxed hour and numerous lovely creations with this unimaginably satisfactory and mesmerising technique. The kit provided gives you enough materials to make two (practise) fridge magnets and six cards. It comes with inserts and envelopes, so you can send your creations out into the world (the course pays for itself!) or turn them into pictures if you don't want to part with them. You can choose from 5 different colour sets (blues, greens, reds, purples and pinks). This course requires a minimum of two people to run, so why not invite some people to join you? Or, If you want to surprise someone with this course, I'll gift wrap it and send it directly to the lucky person's address with a gift tag complete with your personalised message.

For more than 17 years I provide after school art clubs and I still love it, but I have always wanted to work with adults so I get to work with materials and techniques that need more time and are too advanced to use with kids. I also want to prove that everyone can enjoy being creative and make something they are happy with. So far it works. After a Colourbuzz workshop everyone goes away with work they are proud of and pleased with!
