Playful art sessions and journalling to empower you to Get confident, Get inspired and be the artist you want to be
Suitable for all levels
How Does it Work? The Creative Healing Academy is a unique program to help new and experienced artists develop a confident, authentic voice so they can make great art. Every month you'll receive an invitation to a fun online workshop - a 90 minute guided session to encourage you to use paint and collage to make art in new ways. You'll then receive a theme to inspire you to carry on experimenting and develop your own authentic voice. At the end of the month the bonus journalling workshops will help you release anything holding you back from making great art, ensuring you develop a confident, nurturing art practice.
“Not just an art club, this is a healing journey for mind and soul. It nurtures and inspires, guiding you home to your heart.” “It helped me remember who I am and what I love doing.”
With over 20 years experience as a teacher, artist and life-coach, Nicki is passionate about helping people rediscover their creativity
"It reminds me of the Artist's Way, but in person"
"Super, such an interesting way of getting ideas for colours, textures, shapes etc, It gave me the confidence to experiment with techniques and the inspiration to carry on creating art afterwards." Lynda
"First time I've allowed myself "to play" with art rather than trying to get a perfect picture. Sally
So inspiring and full of encouragement, I discovered I had a passion for abstract collage! Lots of fun, excellent, thank you." Lorraine
"NIcki has helped me understand what's holding me back from my creative journey and how to enjoy art again, the way I had planned before bad habits, life situations and commitments got in the way. So enlightening. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is an experienced artist or novice as it is tailored to each individual and is really fun and invigorating." Shari

I’m thinking it’s definitely what I need in my life to help me from slipping back into old habits. I have done about 3/4 of The Artists Way but think I need a bit of a metaphorical push. I can’t wait to get creating again"
"Nicki is one of the most positive, supportive teachers I know."
"Doing an art course is great, but when it finishes you're stuck again. This is a diffferent way of working. It gives me a reason to get making, because I know someone's going to see it. I've made some of my best artwork in these sessions because I can experiment with no pressure."
