Easing into Abstract Painting
Instructor: Ophelia Staton
Class Code: OS190217
Workshop Fee: $65
Medium: Mixed Media
Sunday, February 17th, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
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.
