Have you ever wanted to loosen up with your paintings? Would you like to paint with more freedom or feeling?

Join me as we begin the journey of painting Abstracts. In this workshop we will connect directly to your intuition and express yourself with paint, marks, and collage. Discover new tools and techniques that get you out of a rut and into a more spontaneous way of working. We will paint to music, make marks, play with collage papers, improvise, and more. Learn to be present and simply enjoy the process of creating, as this is the beginning of YOUR personal journey. Learn to let go of fear or expectations that inhibit you, and expand your expressive capacity.

Supplies to bring:

Students will need a sketchbook or notepad for mark making and color exercises.

You may also wish to bring your favorite paintbrushes as well as an apron, water bucket, and rags…
