This module is all about creating a sense of calm through tactile experiences using this amazing soft and spongey Modelling material. I will work with you.
Through a series of 5 art exercises each using a different technique and process.
This module has been very popular with people with anxiety or those who just need a few deep breathes in their day.
Experience 1 Intro and rolling balls We recognise the effect positive tactile experiences have on our well being and we start with rolling small balls and enjoy the feeling of the Magiclay in our hands. We take it slowly and enjoy the rhythm of rolling.
Experience 2 Rolling Snake In this experience we use the whole hand to create long snakes by rolling slowly backwards and forwards on a hard surface. The snakes are then randomly placed on the card.
Experience 3 Squishy Ball We explore the tactile feeling of pressing and squeezing the Magiclay in our fingers as we continue to build up different panels. In this experience we enjoy the spongey feeling of the clay to make squishy balls.
Experience 4 Spirals Using the snake technique from Experience 2 we manipulate the Magiclay into spirals building up a design on our board. At all times we are remembering to enjoy the slow action of rolling and the feel of the spongey clay on our fingers.
Experience 5 Spiral Waves Continuing the joy of working with the soft Magiclay in our fingers we push and roll until we create very small thin snakes that are piled up onto the card base.
