Short Courses


Ilana Rudolph-Hunter, Dru White and Elaine Millin have worked in association since participating in the Bridging Polarities through Art Training.

"This collaboration has borne fruit and developed in unexpected and varied ways. Through it their lives have changed, and this inspires their work with others. Combining their unique talents and experiences enriches what they have to offer."

They can bring these courses to any groups or organisations.

The Core Quadrant
A tool for self-empowerment created by Dutch Executive consultant Daniel Ofman (www.corequality.nl). This experiential course will enable participants to apply this tool to develop their core, innate strength; work with dynamics in relationships; and deepen understanding of reactions and responses to others.
3 x 2.5 hour sessions: chalk pastel, charcoal and clay

Create your own story
Stories hold the potential to heal, encourage and inspire. In this simple yet profound process, participants will experience a wide variety of enriching material.
3 x 2.5 hour sessions: chalk pastels, clay and creative writing

Inner Child
This experiential course will enable participants to access different qualities of the inner child - the Playful, the Wounded and the Spiritual Child. We will explore artistically aspects of the Inner Child, inspired by the CoBrA art movement formed in 1948. Their working method was based on spontaneity and experiment; drawing on the life bringing qualities of the child as an impulse of inspiration and renewal.
3 x 2.5 hour sessions: chalk pastels, clay and acrylic

The Hero Book
A structured narrative/art process, empowering participants to identify the strengths and challenges in their lives; and to give birth to the Hero within. Create your own HERO BOOK and equip yourself to take others through this process.
13 sessions.
