I am an artist, teacher, curator and coach.
I believe that we are all creative beings and can have fulfilling experiences when we explore our creativity in new and imaginative ways.
I offer classes both in my studio and online. I also provide zen coaching and facilitate art workshops.
A Profound Difference
"It's hard for me to put into words what a profound difference Sue's classes have brought to my life. From the outset she has gently, wisely pushed me to explore my artistic expression, introducing me to many new techniques and inspiring ideas, encouraging me all the way, without being pushy. Sue is a remarkable teacher. She is so 'for' her students. She often comes to class with images or ideas because she has been thinking of us during the week. All of this real acceptance and 'for'-ness from Sue creates a class environment which is very special. We laugh a lot and feel what we need to feel on that day, all the time expressing ourselves through our art.I feel so lucky to have found Sue and her classes. I recommend her without reservation."
New Connections and New Friendships
"I have been attending weekly classes with Sue Kaplan since 2013. I have learnt a tremendous amount, gained new skills, and made new connections and friendships - and this is all held by Sue's insightful, caring and fun teaching methods. I would recommend her process highly for anyone who wishes to connect with their creative side."
A Highlight in My Life
"Meeting Sue Kaplan and joining her Creativity Class has been an absolute highlight in my life. Not only is every weekly class a treat, but she has also managed to wake up my time in-between through her enthusiasm and love for being creative. She has taught me that creativity is the antidote to much of life’s hardships and stresses. It provides an outlet, an inlet, a relief and often a solution to the madness of our modern lives.Sue is an exceptional facilitator - one of her (many) great talents is in creating a safe, supportive and fun space that allows us to be fully and freely creative. Her zero tolerance for judgement from oneself or other classmates gives us the space to flex our creative muscles without fear, or concern for the outcome. And so we make beautiful art! Everyone, every single person who comes to Sue’s classes will make beautiful things. A 3 hour class with Sue is like taking a very deep, sweet breath. It’s a sigh, a pause, a giggle and a break from everything…I am so grateful to know Sue and to be able to spend time creating stuff with her."
A Safe Space
"Sue’s classes are a safe space where you can experiment to your hearts content to uncover your creative-self. No matter your level of experience. You will find that you develop the confidence to produce interesting and beautiful work that you never thought you had in you. All this in a fun loving non-pretentious environment filled with lovely people. It’s a must!"
A Lifetime of Memories
"This experience is so much more than just a class, it’s a lifetime of Memories with art from a wonderful teacher...... Sue is such an excellent teacher and after going to many art classes, i see how sue really tries to teach you to increase your skills and improve on what you know rather than just doing a copy of something. ....[it is] the kind of interaction people dream of when visiting a city like Cape Town! If you’re thinking about doing this class, just do it!!"
