"All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ”
Through Lifelines and my pop-up Champagne & Charcoal classes, I would like to give grown-ups who may have strayed from their childhood creative selves, an opportunity to rediscover what it feels like to be an artist whilst confronting their hesitations of drawing the human form ... armed with charcoal in one hand, and a glass of bubbly in the other.
The classes are guided and offer individuals the opportunity to challenge not only their drawing skills, but how they look and see things in a completely uncompetitive environment.
Classes are suitable for ALL levels of experience, with novices possibly finding the most surprising outcomes.
If you would like to find out more, feel free to get in touch.

"Aneta’s teaching method’s were unique and effective. She challenged everyone to open their mind, and to see things in light and shade, rather than simply in conventional borders.
I walked in to the class as a drawer, and I think it’s not too bold to say that when I walked out, I was on my way to becoming an artist, or at least understanding art.
It is not often that one can see – quite literally – how much has been learned in the space of a couple of hours. I think this is valuable because it proves that people can develop skills completely outside of their comfort zone.
I expect that I will draw on this experience for confidence when I am next faced with performing a task that is outside my comfort zone.
I really enjoyed the class and I would be keen do a course. I think that doing things that are completely out of step with the rest of your daily routine helps to ensure a broad experience of life.
And of course, live art is a great reminder that beauty comes in many shapes and sizes."

It is not often that I am reminded of the power of 'the journey' rather than the destination.
My team of 6 have now been at our 'business startup development' for over 30 hours. We've 'pivoted' at least 6 times and our heads are spinning. We lost 2 members along the way who'd given up hope ... and I myself was left wondering how mad I probably was taking this 'leap into the future'.
Yet, here I am actually completely buzzing and excited this morning eager to see how all this will eventuate.
I still laugh at the fact that we started "predicting the future of events" like sport and politics ... somehow pivoting to designing virtual change rooms for 15 year old girls ... And now, we're feeding the egos of fashionistas.
It is worth pointing out that I am the only girl on our team- and no I did not propose this theme of fashion!
Bring on today .. What a journey ... What a ride... But more importantly - how much fun am I having!
Through the madness, frustration and confusion .. I find 'for now', I still love my crazy team of Pivot boys (Kevin, Paul, Alfred, Carl & Jo) ... Can't wait to see how day 3 unfolds!
