Inspired by surrealism and abstraction, I have a fascination for how people relate to nature and how integral that relationship is to peace of mind, spirituality and wellbeing. My course will teach participants to create their own personal place or “Mindscape”. This psychological process starts with their love and fascination with nature. I will start by having them define what is the most important part of their places and community and family. I will show my seniors some contemporary artists like Wangechi Mutu, Matthew Wong, Peter Doig and even local artists that have elevated landscape to a more psychological relationship
