Remember playing in the sand and drawing with crayons as a child?

Rediscover your ability to play, explore and visually express yourself… Through my workshops, classes, land art sessions and creative coaching, I encourage you to have adventures in your everyday life by noticing what is around you, expressing yourself creatively and learning new things. What I wish for you is to see the world through fresh eyes – to see the beauty and magic, even while also seeing the darkness, despair and suffering. It is possible to see and support the love, joy and magic in spite of the negativity, pain and fear.
Let’s unearth your natural creativity.

“I joined Janetʼs Art class for a day of inspiration, wonder, fun, laughter and peace receiving carefully planned guidance to assist in moulding my creativity and ability. I found Janet to be very motivating, gentle, inspiring, knowledgeable, multi-talented and loved that criticism can be constructive!”
Lindie Calitz, ‘Wanabeaartist’

“Janet was absolutely a delight to work with, and the creative development plan she made me is thorough and full of great ideas! Highly recommended, I really appreciated her insights and expertise and I look forward to putting the plan into practice!”
Taylor Jones

Land art outing: join a group session

Create temporary art in the outdoors

After a quick introduction to get to know each other better, I'll introduce you to our site, land art as an art form, and guidelines to your creative process (including how to respect the ecosystem and leave a small impact). After a sensory tune-in with our surroundings (using our senses to look, smell, listen) we'll start playing & making - creating arrangements and visual poetry that express the dialogue you are having with your surroundings. I will make suggestions and give ideas if needed, but you are free to connect, play and create at your own pace and guided by your own creativity. You can create on your own, or work on something together with others. We'll have a look at each temporary art piece - appreciating, taking photos, and sharing thoughts that came up during the process. The site location depends on the season, the weather, and the tide.

What to bring

Simple tools that could be used to shape sand, leaves or other natural materials.
