Uncover and release your creativity!
Go from following tutorials to creating art to call your own.
Too often we feel the pressure of making good art, “insta-worthy” art, serious art, meaningful art. But pressuring ourselves with all of these outside marks of success is not helping us make art and often gets us stuck in fear.
Fear that sounds like:
What if we told you that the way to get unstuck from those fears and to grow in your art making journey is quite simple: you need to play!
For this, we’ve created something you might enjoy. Something to help you grow out of the fear of creating.
Surround yourself with other like-minded creative people who want to explore new things. Let’s play, explore and grow together. We will help you conquer these fears and set a sustainable art practice rooted in play and exploration.
Are you looking for a community of like-minded explorers, to set or expand your own art practice, to grow as an artist?
We created a community just for you! That Creative Space.
Maybe you’re wondering by now if That Creative Space is for you. To be completely honest, we are most excited to work with people who are going to get the most impact from this membership (we do not wish for you to waste your time and money), so let’s unpack who this membership is for.
If this description is a good reflection of your ideal version of your art journey, then we definitely want to work with you! We believe you would be an ideal That Creative Space member and you would have loads of fun as well!
Of course, maybe you need a little help in some areas. Maybe you still have some issues with perfectionism (we all do!) or maybe you need a few tips and tools to help you schedule your art time. We will be there to accompany you on this journey.
This community is a space that will enable you to:
So that you can grow and thrive as an artist and a creative human being!
In That Creative Space, we will be building our own artistic journey and exploring themes together.
There is no algorithm. We don’t have to “fight” for attention. Instead we build relationships that are based on mutual interests and goals.
It’s so much more than just sharing content. It is about real connection. About being each other’s cheerleader.
And often, there are things we would like to share, but just not with the whole world. With selected trusted friends. That Creative Space will be that space (yes, pun intended!).
It is small and intimate. No social media clutter.
I have always had creativity in my life, whether it expressed itself through art making, cooking, writing, photography. There is always a part of me creating something. Since the summer of 2018, my creative journey has focused on watercolors. It all started with playing to watch with pigments travel into water and came full circle with making watercolors and pigments.
After two years spent gathering skills and knowledge, and following a gazillion tutorials, I found myself on an artistic journey I had not planned. And to my amazement, making work that I call my own. The first Paint Yourself Happy Challenge hosted by Simone in early 2020 truly kickstarted this journey. I want to help everyone who wants it to start their own artistic journey.
Creativity, art, paint, pigments and color run through my veins.
When I was little, I was always creating. It was my safe bubble where I could “hide” from all the outside stimuli. I was the kind of kid who you would find in the cold basement of the house with jars of paint, a piece of plywood and a fretsaw making Little Mermaid art. Defying my fear of the big black spiders living in that basement.
As a young adult I left art; “Go do something that helps you pay the bills”, was the message. So I did. I was not happy (this is the very short version of the story).
I don’t think I need to explain I came back to art. It was the best decision ever! Creativity, whether it is talking about it, using it, reading about it or helping people uncover their creativity, is still one of my biggest passions.
When you join That Creative Space, you’ll get to enjoy these benefits:
Although we have come up with a format, we also want to discuss this with the founding members during the first 3 months.
The format we now use to plan our content around:
Get inspired, play and experiment (the shitty art stage)
Reflect and adjust
Play and experiment some more
Piece it together (work towards a piece of art)
This is a cycle many artists go through. Whether they're making a piece of art or are working on big projects.
While playing often and shifting your mindset towards play and the creative process in itself will help you grow as an artist, the focus of this community in not on skills. There will not be technical training per say. We will however share tips and such about using each medium we focus on.
Yes. We will record our live Zoom meetings. They will be available to you for a limited amount of time.
After each live session we will also provide detailed recaps of the topics discussed.
These times will be decided with the help of the people who join. We will work very hard to include most people in the calls. Having two hosts, one being in Europe and the other in Canada also provides opportunity for perhaps different schedules to make sure everyone is included.
