Ideas and Inspiration for Your Seasonal Art Journey
Alison Hazel Art Home Page
Welcome, below is some information about who I am and what inspires me as a hobby artist.
I follow natural seasonal changes and do a lot of nature journaling and art challenges.
I also share some musings on managing my energy for creative practices.
To be a hobby artist you won’t necessarily make art every day or even every week, but we hope you will make some art every season.
The four seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter are marked by the movement of the Sun.
These are natual rhythms of the Earth and life.
The seasons produce the growing cycle for plants and some animals.
If you can align yourself with each changing season.
You will have around thirteen weeks to produce some art which we like to call seasonal art.
To have four art projects each year is a manageable way to get into, or get back into, making and creating art for your pleasure.
We explore how to be a hobby artist and use art for self-care.
In a crazy digital world to be able to disengage and go analogue (with pen, pencil or brush) can soothe your frazzled mind.
Our main themes are:
- Aspiring artist – Getting going as an aspiring artist and understanding your inner voice.
- Art for self-care – Meditative art, neurographic art and self-care art.
- Third Age Art – For mature women to find their voice.
- Christian Art and sacred places – Sacred places, symbols and icons.
- Art Business Ideas – When to go public with your art business and how to prosper with your art.
- Writing for creatives with activities like journaling, morning pages and NaNoWriMo.
