Have you ever had an intention to imagine something different or better for your art? Learn to use the visual mind to access, strengthen and grow its potential in order to transform yourself and your art practice. Kelly-Ann Denton leads you through neuroscience, the visual mind, change (alchemy), visual mapping, metaphor, visualisations, meditation, psychology, curiosity and actually learning to see new connections, preparing you for a personal and transformative journey into your imagination. Each week she presents brand-new skills that either generate imaginative processes or remove blocks, offering an invitation to explore and expand in unique and personal ways. Suitable both for those with an artistic practice and those just starting out, the course is open to all who are looking for an adventure of the creative mind. Learn to harness your imagination and apply it like an alchemist to transform your ideas from what they were to all they can become. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
