Experiments in Expressive Painting Workshop with Sam Green

The juror for our current exhibit, “Outside In”,(Sam Green) will lead you through painting prompts and exercises to add expression and individuality to your paintings.  Sam will encourage you to paint quickly and freely, using your brush as well as a number of other tools for your marking making experience.  The instructor will be working in oil paints, however, you are welcome to use acrylics or other media.

 Meditation sessions with Paulette’s guidance provide a welcome relief from my very busy life. A moment to connect with others and myself to reflect on kindness and self acceptance in a non judgmental and beautiful setting at WCFA. VG
