“Oh Tara, your course has had a profound impact on my art practice. I have always been drawn to habitats, but have found it difficult to interpret them ~ scattered by too much information and too many different media and techniques. Your course helped me understand how I need to find my visual language and has given me a process to do that. As well, I realise that all the different techniques I use are simply part of a toolbox. I can look in and draw out the technique that best suits what I want to say about the habitat. So, instead of being driven by the technique/medium, my starting point is which to choose to best interpret my visual language. That is such a breakthrough, and I can’t thank you enough for helping me to get there.”
The Inspired by Nature course is an online experience designed to untangle your creative process. Tara Axford invites you into her studio and guides you through the process and techniques she has developed over 25years, making her one of Australia’s most popular Mixed Media Artists.
Exploring a variety of media Tara will show how to look at the familiar with fresh eyes. By the end of the course you will confidently interpret your collections of found objects and photographs from nature into artwork that truly reflects your unique style and sense of place.
All course materials, including beautifully produced videos, actionable tasks and downloadable resource guides are within an easy to use member portal.
You’ll also be able to ask questions, get feedback and connect with Tara and fellow Inspired By Nature students online within a private group for enrolled students.
