Online Scholarship Opportunities for 2019!

Community building, artistic integrity and technical excellence. These are the foundations of my workshops.

I want to make these as available as possible to everyone. Sometimes life is challenging either financially or due to personal circumstances, and time dedicated to creativity can be what is most needed, but may not be attainable.

I have set up this scholarship series for 2019 to help you get that creative boost you need this year, even if you felt it might not be possible.

Deadline: May 31st, 2019
Selected recipients will be notified on June 1st, 2019

DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN THE CONSCIOUS AND SUBCONSCIOUS brain could help unlock creativity, says Jan Cross of the Extraordinary Mind Project.
Inspired by her own child’s creative flair, Ms Cross wanted to know why the creative parts of many people’s brains switch off in adulthood.
She spent some time developing a program to help re-harness creativity and reconnect with the joys of childhood.
Free workshops Ms Cross founded the Extraordinary Mind Project, running workshops that use drawing to unlock inner creativity.
“We need to train the brain to focus on the present and get out of pre-existing pathways in order to see things freshly,” Ms Cross says.
“All we need to do is know how to pose questions to the brain that stop it in its patterned tracks.”
She says this helps people view things with greater detail, and not worry about the big picture.
Ms Cross says more than 3,700 people have been through her course, which also increases confidence and improves concentration.
One participant, Kerry Nunn, says the project helped her to publish a book since recommended by Curtin University.
“The project is not just about drawing; drawing just helps you see the results more quickly,” she says.
The project, running since 2006, offers six different types of workshops.
Ms Cross holds free 2.5 hour workshops. For details go to or contact [email protected] or 0488755088

Irit Dulman Australian teaching trip October and November 2019 - UPDATE: Hi, here's a copy of the mini-update email that went out to our mailing list. Some of you have not provided an email address so I hope you see this:

Thanks so much for your patience awaiting information on the exciting opportunity to join botanical printing workshops I am hosting with Irit Dulman coming to teach you here in Australia for the first time.

I’m providing a mini-update because we now have solid dates and you have already waited far too long for more information:

NSW 26 Oct to 1 Nov Workshop #1 seven days

5 to 11 November Workshop #2 seven days

WA 19 to 23 November Workshop #3 five days

Cost is all inclusive and includes the night before learning days and the night of the last learning day. Please do not contact our venues to book. All booking and accommodation allocations will be through me.

Budget issues: due to my failure to take account of tax and superannuation requirements, and that my contract with Irit is in US dollars, I regret to advise that I have not been able to keep costs as low as we had hoped. I am now fairly sure we can keep it at up to $400AUD per person per day, still less than the daily rate for Netherlands or Uruguay.

We are offering two seven day residential workshops in NSW at the ANU campus at Kioloa and one five day residential workshop in WA at the Margaret River Retreat, Margaret River.

With our strong commitment to providing a quality and enjoyable learning experience in natural environments, there are limited places per group.

Full details including program outline, accommodation arrangements, transport directions and other useful information (like final cost and registration form), is following.

Please accept my apologies for the long delays in getting more information to you.

You will have the opportunity to register for your place in one of the workshops in reply to the next email I send you.

Thank you. I am so looking forward to meeting you in person!

JUST WOW! The work!!!!

Go on! Be in it to win it!

You can register to be part of our exhibition from tomorrow Tuesday 26th March.
Simply visit our website and find the online form. 😁😁😁
