About your Tutor: Soma Mandal Datta (Dr)

I am a mixed media artist from Perth, Australia. I have over 15 years of experience as an educator most of which was at a leading Australian University. I teach traditional art forms but my passion lies in teaching people ways to find their happy place through art. Having transformed my own life through an intuitive painting approach (rooted in expressive arts in art therapy), I am now super-passionate about showing people on how to create their own transformations through creative me-time and by applying the principles used in intuitive art. I hope these courses bring about positive transformations in your life and empower you with creative skills to nourish your well-being.

The whole course is a self paced course which means it is not run "live"with lessons released each week. I will be checking in a couple of times a week regardless and will be checking on your progress. There are video lessons some of which have multiple parts, mini quizzes to self-assess your learning, as well as workbooks to download to help you practice what you learn. There are discussion boards under lessons where you can discuss, share your work, interact with your classmates and get feedback from me on the work you create. Plus you get access to a private Facebook group where you can continue your learning  via peer-to-peer discussions, show and tell and connecting with old and new students.

Nope - this is suitable for all skill levels and no prior skills are required. Simply the desire to learn via exploration.

I am sorry but once you sign up then refunds will not be given. If there are technical difficulties I will work with NZenler to ensure these are sorted for you.

The whole curriculum is designed so it's easy to remember with a free method enabling recollection of the basic concepts in practical situations. Plus you get a free bonus ' Colour Explorations' workbook which you can use to practice what you have learnt as many times as you need. However, I would also recommend jotting down notes, ideas and inspirations in a visual diary/sketchbook which will become your very own learning tool for future courses and activities you might pursue in your creative journey.

This is a two week course. However life happens and some may need bit longer to complete. Your fee buys you 10 week access so you have bonus time to catch-up in case you fall behind. I would highly recommend doing your best to complete it within this time frame so you get the opportunity to share and get feedback on your art projects that result out of this project. Their is also a MEMBERSHIP OPTION for you to access ALL OUR COURSES including this one for a monthly fee. Email if you need to chat and we will be happy to discuss your options.
