ONLINE SeedArtLab INTRO-sessions were first launched in late March 2020 AND CONTINUE TO BE AVAILABLE IN 2021.
The themes and work tasks normally offered by the Artist/Facilitator in FACE TO FACE classes in Australia have been organised into TWO Workshop stages ....
STAGE ONE... INTRO sessions.
the INTRO Series packs in a very significant amount of EXTRA content however not available in the in-person workshops due to lack of time.
Here in the ONLINE format the exercises from the morning of DAY ONE of real-time time classes has been expanded so you can really benefit if you have time to work slowly on the material over weeks or longer.
Its UP TO YOU whether you choose to spend a bit of time over a few days doing the exercise or decide to set up a more thorough approach over a longer period.
ITS WORTH MENTIONING:
This course was designed for participants during the First COVID lockdown periods all around the globe. Therefore... some found it deeply inspiring to go for walks in nature, to be collecting twigs for mark-making or seeds from their neighbourhood.
Some developed a practice of going walking and taking photos of seeds they found.
Then returning home and exploring all the approaches to drawing, seed photography and so on.
YOU have the opportunity to really focus and be guided through some wonderfully stimulating processes that are both highly diverse & productive yet also relaxing and meditative in nature.
ONCE YOU HAVE BOOKED IN the INTRO SESSION notes and information will be sent by email ready for you to start.
Expense is minimal ... to get going the materials you will use are
INK - black
A JOURNAL - one you have already is fine
PAPER - Cartridge is good to start.
A SMART PHONE for photography
To participate in the private Facebook Group Page interactions please friend Sophie Munns on Facebook so she can friend you and then INVITE you to the group... links are all in the notes you'll be sent.

IF you wish to know more!
What's been great about this learning approach is you have the opportunity to take more of your own time to play around with the ideas on your desk. In much the same way any participant who may have attended a real-time workshop takes home an array of new starting points to process, to experiment further with and so on.
Content for these Online exploratory sessions is based on the multi-faceted approach Sophie brings to all her teaching engagements... with the very big plus that time is not so limited ... so you can individually choose what you can manage and how long to to spend on tasks.
Adult & Student Workshops conducted in person by the artist on the whole vary greatly in length ... schools students may access a short session, half day or whole day of engagement whereas Adult Workshops are generally conducted over one, two or three days.... or longer sometimes.
This Online Learning program has had lot's of room to evolve already since the start in later March ... Curiosity and experimentation are key and this is an opportunity for each individual to leave their known ways of working to try out new ways.
Thankyou for your interest,
Please share this if you know of anyone likely to be interested to find out more!
