About the event

We will meet on the paint deck or outside, weather depending, from 10 am 1 pm getting the brightest light of the day.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: Participants will create their own unique piece of art on a canvas, using brushes, mark making tools and acrylic paints to take home by the end of the class. Supplies included. This class or the 1-1 Mentoring is prerequisite to Painting as Practice. My intention is to help you unblock any fears around art making, help you feel free to use art for self-expression and have fun.

Part 1: Background: Students will explore an intuitive approach to acrylic painting and mark making while investigating different elements of drawing, brushwork, and surface quality within a painting. The way that paint is applied and expressed is an integral part of one’s visual language, inherently impacting how a work of art is seen, felt, and interpreted. Experiment with the processes that generate exciting, authentic and unique works of art tailored to developing your personal style.

-Brunch Break- Bring your own snacks and enjoy some seasonal freshly picked and prepared fruit from the land, such as coconuts, avocados, mangoes and star fruit. Water and tea provided. 

Part 2: Embellishment – In this part of the class we will discuss how to look at your abstract color background composition and then add more into it. Often, it’s best to have a few people look at your image to help you find that hidden inspiration, we will see what we can all help you discover within the patterns.
