Short Statement

We live in a highly imbalanced world that encourages us to categorise, memorise, divide and think rationally and linearly, instead of using our own judgment, critical skills, creativity and insights. We put all our faith in science, technology and empirical knowledge and anything that cannot be proven, tested or even seen is promptly discarded. Instead, Jacqueline believes that human beings are both rational as well as symbolic, and we cannot have the one without the other. When we integrate all the different aspects of our being, and we allow for both myth and science to co-exist, we become whole and complete, and we can see the world in a more creative and holistic way - but without discarding any of all the individual pieces and possibilities. We also allow ourselves to be flexible thinkers and not to be put into a box.

Through art and creativity, we can thus nurture and develop aspects of ourselves that we have perhaps neglected, allowing us to reach our full potential. We move away from false dichotomies and into a place of unity in which there is no "good" or "bad," "high" or "low," "better" or "worse," but every aspect becomes a mirror of each other expressing both qualities simultaneously. Thus, rational and symbolic (creative) thinking are finally blended into one, and are given equal attention and status.

In addition to enriching our experience and understanding of the world, Jacqueline also believes that art can  promote and support social as well as personal change and healing; therefore, she is particularly happy if her classes can provide a form of relaxation, self-growth and self-exploration in an environment where everybody is treated with respect and is encouraged to reach their best potential in a friendly, positive and supportive atmosphere.

After this, we will then move on to colour and learn about different art techniques including pastel, acrylic/watercolour and oil.

This course will provide you with both practical as well as some theoretical skills.
