Painting from the Soul
Instructor: Susan Miller
Class Code: SM181103
Workshop Fee: $120.00
Medium: Mixed Media
Saturday, November 3rd, 10:00am-5:00pm
This class is a journey into the creative process that will deepen your understanding and connection with yourself and your art-making. Even if you have not picked up a brush and paint since you were a child, you will open up to the freedom of being fully in tune with your inner voice when you experience this workshop!
You will learn how to:
-Use different mediums in your art-making: acrylic inks/paints, graphite, spray paints, oil pastels, ink and pastel sticks!
-Build a background in layers using lots of juicy inks and paint, stencils, stamps, colorful collaging and natural objects!
-Use a wide range of unconventional tools such as sticks, leaves, bubble wrap, drywall tape, scratching tools and corrugated cardboard to create dynamic textures and patterns
You will go home with vibrant paintings and the skills needed to develop an intuitive creative practice that includes reflection, inspiration, movement, color, and joy!
