Tell a story through images by creating colorful compositions with natural elements, memories and everyday objects to create impactful content for your social media

Beauty may often seem mysterious and elusive, but it's actually much closer than you might think, hiding in plain sight. Rediscover the ordinary and learn to see the world from a different angle: any object or element, no matter how simple, has a wealth of potential and the power to tell a story.

Artist Bernulia has mastered the art of viewing reality in a new light and making eye-catching flat lay compositions with vivid colors using everyday objects and natural elements. In this course, she teaches you how to let your eyes be your guide and illustrate an emotion by creating a unique composition to share on your social media.
