"Rode Draad" course:
I finished my first year of a course to be a Creative Coach at (https://www.creatiefcoaching.nl/). Had done some workshops there and really liked the way Pascale works. If you are looking for great creative workshops and/or make large mixed media paintings this is the place to be. This first year is about the thread (rode draad) of your life. Not entirely sure if this means the same in English as it does in Dutch.
Why I went there:
I started this to learn more about myself and to have something serious to do. Learned a lot and in the fall I will start the second year. I must be really liking it and be motivated. I need to travel 157km back and forth to go there and that twice a month. Without a traffic jam this will take me 3 1/2 hours each trainingsday. And......lots of the time it is more busier on the road so it takes me lots longer. That is why I started this spring instead of earlier. I saw this training and wanted to do it. I just thought I would be crazy to drive this far twice a month. But it kept pulling me so finally I did it.
And no regrets at all, in the coming winter it will be more difficult to avoid traffic jams. I will just eat somewhere at the way back and take my time. Easy does it.
My "art work" made at this course:
Most of the things we made where just exploring your life and inner self. We used different art materials to make images and follow your autobiografic thread of life. I am not going into that in this blog, so I will not show or explain what was done there. I just like to show a few pictures of some of the things I made that are worthy showing from an "art" point of view only.
