Meet the Artist
Anastasia Rydlevskaya is an artist and musician from Poland who focuses on exploring profound themes related to mental health, non-binarity, and gender self-determination. She uses a philosophical lens inspired by luminaries such as Emmanuel Levinas, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Albert Camus to investigate the intricate relationship between the Self and the Other. Her work also delves into the impact of societal systems of oppression and the existential fear of life's finite nature on the human psyche.

Beyond the visual realm, Rydlevskaya's creative vision extends seamlessly into the realm of music. Her skillful use of synesthesia allows her to craft both visual and auditory masterpieces, giving life to 'sounding pictures' and 'visual songs'. Experience the profound synergy of philosophy and art through Anastasia Rydlevskaya's work as it transcends boundaries and resonates on multiple sensory levels.

I used to only create when inspiration struck me. The rest of the time, I was waiting for this magical inspiration to come. I began to accumulate sketchbooks that I didn't draw in, good paper, and materials that I didn't use. After some time, I realized that it was my fear of a blank sheet, the fear of not creating something good enough or perfect, the fear of not creating a masterpiece at the first attempt. I was waiting for my masterpiece to appear and the inspiration for it, but it never came because I didn't do anything, so I wasted time.

This course is the result of personal research on finding methods that will help to keep up a constant and healthy process of free creativity. We will talk about inspiration and how to make it appear when we need it.

Our attention will be focused on methods that will help reach a creative flow, and not only be frutfull for your art but also fun and relaxing. An important element throughout the course will be the element of the “game” which is at the core of every method that we will come to know. We will create a safe space where there will be no right or wrong, all mistakes turn are looked on as experiments, and only categories of interesting or uninteresting, fun or not fun, exist. The controlled randomness of materials will help us create in a freer manner. The unintentional drop of paint can serve as the first step to overcoming the fear of a blank sheet. Embracing accident acts will remove the fear of making mistakes and the responsibility of chance.

This course is designed for all levels of experience. No prior knowledge is required. Let's unlock your creative potential and embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth!

    Hours of material
Lesson 1
Serious games
We will explore the concept of the game as an artistic method.

Theory: We will discuss Surrealists and “OuLiPo” and examine the techniques they used when creating their works.

Practice: We will create a series of works using various methods - fumage, decalcomania, automatic drawing, and automatic writing. Additionally, we will study Raymond Queneau’s “99 Exercises in Style” for inspiration.
Lesson 2
Author’s Myth
Theory: We will be exploring myths from around the world, including Scandinavian, African, Ancient Greek and Roman, Celtic, and more. We will use the narrative and structure of these myths to tap into our inner emotions and create our
own artistic universe.

Practice: We will employ Carl Jung's method of 16 associations to draw inspiration from our unconscious minds and create our own myth based on the results of the 16 associations map.
Lesson 3
Three-dimensional paintings
New material - new way of creating.

Theory: We will discuss a method that can be used as a helpful tool for finding energy when experiencing burnout or fatigue from creating. This method allows you to not discard what you have already created, but gives you a chance to break free from the repetitive nature of your work and create something qualitatively new, original, and unexpected without overthinking. You will notice a change in your artistic flexibility when you create similar images using different materials and dimensions.

Practice: Create a three-dimensional picture from plasticine based on the works that were made with traditional materials on paper.


Lesson 4
The face in the two-way mirror
New level of self-portraits.

Theory: We will delve into the history of self-portraiture in visual arts and explore its origins. During the lesson, we will discuss different methods that can help you create an engaging self-portrait, such as drawing from text, using the "eyes on the mirror" technique, working with large formats, and employing expressive techniques.

Practice: We will create self-portraits using various methods and in different formats.

Lesson 5
Mistakes do not exist
Finding inspiration in our "bad" works

Theory: "This is my favorite topic. I will tell you about my personal experience of working with mistakes and how to fully accept yourself as an artist who is able to make mistakes that work for you and find inspiration in them," said teacher Anastasia Rydlevskaya. Our last lesson will focus on liberation and freedom. After this lesson, the inner non-constructive critic will never be able to hurt you.

Practice: Using "good" pieces from your "bad" works, we will create a new work (collage portrait or figurative drawing).
MATERIALS NEEDED:
  • Paper: 250gsm A4, A3, A5, A0 (200-250gsm)
