Intuitive Abstract Painting Workshop
October 21 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
This workshop is designed for all who long for artistic expression, yet their formal training or lack thereof prevents them from un-locking their creativity. For that reason, the level of experience in this workshop is not important. The purpose of intuitive painting is to free yourself of all judgements about you as an artist, and by trusting your in-born creativity and intuition.
All preconceived ideas about art, making art, painting, formal training, history and theory of art as well as students’ own ideas about their creativity, artistic abilities and success in artistic endeavors will become irrelevant during these two days.
During the workshop students will have an opportunity to step out of their busy mind and following gentle guidance of the instructor stay in the now, right in the source of creative process. In relaxed and rule-free atmosphere, they will make a number of nonobjective (abstract) paintings. Students will use acrylic paint and variety of tools usually not associated with painting, like: cut cardboard, pieces of cloth, sponges, combs, twigs, palms of their hands if they wish.
The second part of the workshop will be focused on choosing best parts of their large paintings with a use of view finders, and turning them into independent art pieces ready to be framed, reproduce, or made into greeting cards. The workshop is all about allowing yourself to be the artist you truly are.
