Camp Pikaland: Exploring the 5 senses

My co-conspirator for the Pikaland Artist Bootcamps, Jamie Shelman is going to be teaching a new class, called Exploring the 5 Senses which starts on 22nd August over on Camp Pikaland, and I caught up with her for a little chat about her new class!

Tell us a bit more about this class Jamie! What inspired you to do this?
Art is about our ability to communicate sensory experience and while that most often takes the form of visual art, our sources of inspiration are note purely visual! By examining each of the 5 senses we become more aware of how we can interpret and incorporate a greater sensory experience!

Haven’t you always wondered how you could interpret the smell of your morning coffee, the texture of a Christmas tree, or the sound of that Great Horned Owl that hoots outside your window at night? This course is about pushing the boundaries and challenging yourself to interpret your art with a new sense!

What will I gain from this course?
New ideas! Connections! Support. A new community of artists to share and express your ideas and share your art! Valuable feedback and insight on how others see and interpret your work. 5 new works of art created entirely by you! New ways of seeing and expressing who you are and what you love (or hate, or fear, or smell, or hear etc etc!) using your 5 senses as inspiration.
