She will be incorporating many activities and processes featured in her new book, Absolutely Abstracts, along with many other techniques that will stretch your mind and hone your skills while painting on a variety of surfaces including a LARGE painting on canvas (30″ x 30″).
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. Come make your mark and be all that you can be!
Thoughts from your instructor: Words of advice…Abstract painting can be both invigorating and frustrating. This weekend we are going to let go of expectations for the end result while 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 each other, and know that the road isn’t always smooth when we are painting. If things came too easily, would they be really worth the journey??
You will be provided shared supplies and a few distributed supplies to keep including assorted paints, fluid and soft body, gesso, gel mediums, assorted pencils, water-soluble crayons, stencils, scrapers, mark making tools, mixed media paper, collage paper, painting surfaces and a 30×30 canvas.
Please bring: During this 2 ½ day workshop, our goal is to have most everything you need to paint and play freely without having to invest heavily into professional painting supplies. With that said, there are a few things that each student will be asked to bring that are essential for every painter to have:
- Assorted Brushes – a few flat brushes (2 inches) along with several other flat and round brushes for details in assorted sizes.
- Palette paper (or palette)
- Journal to sketch or take notes in
Optional: Feel free to just come as you are with the few supplies everyone is asked to bring, but if you just can’t live without that special paint color, stencil, or collage material in your stash, bring what you enjoy using. Don’t go overboard. No Roller Bags of stuff are needed for this class!
