Week 1. Create a Positive vision for your future, using collaged words, photos and pictures out of  old books  and magazines, glue, glitter, paint and coloured pencils.

 Week 2.  Relax, close your eyes, listen to music and create an abstract or semi abstract picture from your imagination, write down what you think this picture is telling you.

Week 3. Bring a photograph of yourself along and we will create a quirky self portrait using coloured pencils, felts paints and crayons.

Week 4. Become a child again. Using my vast range of children's books for  inspiration, create a picture that would appeal to a child or your inner child.

Week 5.  Gathering  inspiration from nature. Come for a quick walk into the bush next door to Rotorua Arts Village breathe in the fresh air.  Doodle a picture with black felt about your memory or experience.
