Silencing the Inner Critic
Art coaching with John Worth

Introductory Session: Silencing the Inner Critic

90 minutes: Face-to-face or Online  £50

 

This session will introduce you to the overall programme.

 

I will guide you through an exercise designed to gauge where you are on your artistic journey and an understanding of what matters to you. We will explore resources together and generate a clear picture as to how we will work together during the programme and a structure for our sessions together.

Studio Programme: Silencing the Inner Critic

Face-to-face in the studio, six 90 minute sessions:  £450

Lewes or Chiddingfold

 

Sessions 1 & 2

Themes:

  • The art of looking, seeing, and connecting with your internal responses.

  • Researching and gathering inspiration.

  • Photographing and recording ideas, marks, and textures.

We will normally start the programme with a session dedicated to walking together in a landscape, for example on the South Downs or a river walk.  Whilst walking, the themes for discussion will focus on developing an artistic perspective, seeing and recording source material. 

Sessions 3, 4 & 5

Working together in the studio I will guide and support you through a range of exercises, including sketching, creating surfaces, mark-making, use of colour and paints. 

Session 6 

In the final session I will introduce you to the principles for editing and displaying your work and curating a narrative to accompany it. We will explore the artistic disciplines and techniques you are most attracted to and the next steps you may wish to take. 

Online Programme: Silencing the Inner Critic

Five 90 minute online sessions: £375

The Online Programme is appropriate for those who are comfortable using online platforms such as Zoom or Facetime for virtual meetings and working collaboratively. It may suit those who have some experience of exploring their artistic interests but could use the mentoring and support my style of coaching offers them.
