Finding your own creative path

No matter what you do or who you are, you have a creative path to walk.
Finding an authentic expression for your creativity is important.

I hear
"oh I'm not creative"
"yeah but I don't have time"
"I'm no good at art"

Creativity is about doing what you feel passionate about to the best of your ability. Right now that could be a really important stress reliever.

When we find ourselves in situations that are not truly us, we put ourselves under enormous stress to adapt and change, to 'work' in that environment, fit in, succeed. That constant stress factor takes its toll on our personal mental and physical health. The current economic climate makes us feel like we have less choices so it is really important to manage your personal stress.

Creativity in action is a great way to do that.

We don't always chose to work at or with our passion. Sometime we don't believe we can. But do we know what your passion is? Do you?

Now that is worth exploring.

  1. Inspired Business Growth
    Finding new ways to work in the current economic climate.

  2. Moving Forward
    This course can be run in a business context or on a personal level. The strategic development and goal setting principals are the same but the facilitation is structured accordingly. Moving Forward teaches tools for living and dynamic insights.

New Work

I've just framed some work and they fit in the small, affordable, good for presents mode so I thought I might post them here so you could have a look at them.

What to do if you see some thing you like?

  1. Let me know you like what you see, you can post a comment below.
  2. If you would like to purchase a piece of work you can email me at ballygarrettartstudio (at) gmail.com to let me know which piece you would like to purchase and we can make arrangements from there.
  3. If you would like to comission me to create a piece of work email me also.
These orignal framed paintings and textiles can be posted through An Post at local postage rates (I've done it before even for big pieces and it works fine). Size of frames varies the smallest being 15cm x 15cm and the largest in this range being 26cm x 26cm.

You can look at more of my work on line and order prints on line here. Or visit a selection of my work currently on show at the Enterprise Centre in the Gorey Business Park.

Fantastic Choco-tastic!

On Tuesday Ballgarrett Art Studio was host to kids for Choco-Tastic! Edible art and construction with chocolate and marzipan.

Thanks to the Mykidstime.ie website demand was so popular that I hosted two sessions. Ages 2 - 13 participated and the chocolate fun was great.

The children made nests for mini Easter eggs and then we had a fluffy chick to place on top of them. If was all about the senses; the smell of the chocolate, the feeling of the twigs, licking our fingers as we went, fun and edible.

The second activity was a bit different we used marzipan and coloured white fondant icing to making a chick, duck or animal shape out of marzipan, just like pottery but edible! The kids were not so impressed by the marzipan so this activity was more about making rather then eating.
We particularly liked the duck with boxing gloves (age 4)
and these dainty decorations on this chick (age 7).

The second group was a group of older girls and they really went for mixing it up with their marzipan creations.
