What you'll do

i invite you to sit back, relax and breathe for a moment. In these challenging times some slow, deep breathing gives us spaciousness for art to come along and act as a healing balm, helping us connect deeper with ourselves and each other, slowly and with intention, even if it is across a virtual screen.

you will gather a selection of materials for drawing and painting, including pencils, ink, brushes, paint and paper. if you don't have much stationery available, i invite you to search your kitchen for non traditional materials such as curry powder, turmeric, bleach, salt, coffee and tea and together we will concoct homemade inks and stains. We can use sticks, feathers and earbuds as mark making implements as well as traditional materials to create a variety of expressive guided drawings onto paper. You have the option of folding, cutting or manipulating your paper and either gluing or stitching a simple book as a diary of sorts adding words and feelings to fill it each day. ....or you may just want to turn your explorations into finished works on paper.
i will support you as you work in a mindful way, helping you to keep calm and maintain focus in these crazy days.
i hope this colourful, exploratory experience kickstarts your creative journey and i would be so happy to guide you on this joyful experience!

I have been running creativity classes and therapeutic art sessions for a long time and recently began offering experiences to the airbnb global community. One of the guests said: “ this experience is so much more than just a class, it’s a lifetime of Memories with art from a wonderful teacher...... Sue is such a excellent teacher and after going to many art classes, sue really tries to teach you to increase your skills and improve on what you know rather than just doing a copy of something. ....[it is] the kind of interaction people dream of when visiting a city like Cape Town! If you’re thinking about doing this class, just do it!!”

i am an artist, art teacher, curator and have a Masters Degree in Fine Art. I am in training as a zen coach, so I would be happy to practice my listening skills while you explore the language of art.

I had wonderful time. Very warm and welcoming host that makes you feel at ease throughout the whole process. Such a unique and valuable experience. I will definitely include this art meditation practice in my creative routine from now on. I wouldn’t be able to do this on my own without Sue’s guidance. I would truly recommend it to anyone, not only professional or amateur creatives.

We had such a great experience with Sue learning all sorts of different art methods in such a comfortable and open virtual setting. Sue is very experienced and obviously very talented. She taught us so much during our session and even stayed later to help us finish up our work. The open communication facilitated a therapeutic window for us to open up and relax while harnessing our creativity. We found this experience to be a great date and would highly recommend to groups as well as individuals. Thanks Sue! Jess and Sven

Sue has a way of making a person feel completely at ease and takes the time to make a personal connection with her guest. The class is exceptional in interpersonal relaxation/meditation technique as well as comprehensive knowledge of her subject material/medium and how effortlessly she guides one into new and exciting territory - it was as if I had met an old friend and we were simply enjoying the creative journey together - I started as a stranger but left knowing I had not only made a good friend but had Sue's exceptional knowledge, care & support into my work & life- I highly recommend this course - Thank you Sue you are a great teacher and I look forward to my next class with you -

I am an absolute novice, and Sue's style of guided self discovery really helped me understand how to start making 'marks on paper'. She hit the perfect spot of letting me find my own way, with colour and texture. Will definitely be coming back for more!
