With this extended weekend of focusing on a single subject, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and dive into your work yet be gently be guided and encouraged by your instructor and fellow students.
Words of advice…Abstract painting can be both invigorating and frustrating. This weekend we are going to let go of expectations and we fully immerse ourselves in the processes.
You’ll be encouraged to trust your instincts, as the answers should come from within and not outside sources. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes learn from the ‘opportunities’ that appear by happenstance (very often, those unexpected outcomes can lead to the most amazing parts of our work). As we focus on design, and color-understand that the path to the finish line isn’t always a smooth and lateral exploration. If things came too easily, would they be really worth the journey??
We will cover many processes and techniques throughout the workshop but just like many things in life, there are many steps that can be skipped, repeated, or altered. The more you explore, the more likely you are going to find what works for you, and most importantly, what makes YOUR heart sing.
Are you ready to step out of your comfort zone and join in this creative experience?
Are you ready to stretch your wings and dance with color?
In this next chapter of my Abstract painting work shops, we will be honing in on ways to create color palettes that work together and dive into more advanced ways of mixing paint and mediums to create effects that are mystical and dreamy. If you are looking to stretch your wings and advance your painting skills, join us for this exciting extended weekend workshop!
Covered with the tuition of your course: surfaces to work on including a medium-large sized canvas and several mixed media papers for warm up exercises, professional and student grade paint, assorted stencils, collage material, gel mediums, paint applicators (palette knives, scrapers, etc…), and a wide array of drawing material.
You should bring assorted brushes that you feel comfortable with. Keep in mind, we will be working on at least one larger painting so please bring at least one medium to large flat or round brush. I tend to use mostly flat brushes with a few round brushes mixed into my collection. If you have a palette (especially one with a cover) you may want to bring that long as well, otherwise palette paper will be made available.
Optional-you will have more than enough paint to use in our shared supply collection but if there are colors you just can’t live without, feel free to bring those as well. Art journal to use for idea collecting and to build backgrounds with excess paint.
*If you have room and would like to bring a couple small paintings you are all ready working on but would like to re-do or enhance, feel free to bring them along. (Note, space is limited so please only bring small to medium sized paintings).Agenda:
