You'll be learning art techniques whilst also creatively playing as you did as a kid - writing, cutting and gluing, collaging and colouring.
Come away with an art journal of ideas and inspiration, and the ability to generate more.
Zom will also share the six secrets of creativity that she has learnt from twenty years of being an artist. Over five days you will explore how creativity works: how to call in inspiration, what slows creativity and what stops it completely.
“There is no such thing as a person who is not creative. It is one of the innate qualities of being human. The common idea that some people are born creative and others aren’t is ridiculous,”
“Being creative builds self-trust. It also brings joy, healing, excitement and play and contributes to a sense of purpose. It lessens cravings for material things as our natural desire to create brings fulfillment. And learning how to access your inspiration strengthens intuition.”
"Art journaling was the tool that helped to free my inspiration and make me a better artist, and once my creativity began to really open it brought me many unexpected joys and blessings."

Camp Creative Survey
"It was a great mix of learning new skills, practising them and sharing with the group/ learning from classmates about the challenges and experience of 'being creative'."
"Zom was a thoughtful and considered tutor. She had so much experience and skill but also created space for people to find their own path or raise their own questions."
"This course really took us out of our comfort zone, and was therefore quite confronting at times with what came up out of the individual!! - you could almost call this course the essential core of Camp Creative as that's exactly what we were doing - accessing our pure creativity by bypassing the logical,analytical parts of our brains - but not without a struggle to let go of that side!"
"Much of our time was spent creating and doing rather than listening and talking which was good. It's good to get a balance of both. More doing than listening is essential!"
