Tap into your intuition and have fun and paint!
Learn to select colors intuitively and apply various textures and marks to a wood panel using a variety of materials to create an 11×14 abstract acrylic painting on a wood panel.
Experiment with expressive colors; explore thick and thin textures of acrylics; play with flow acrylics using various amounts of water, silicone, glitter, and more. Combine that with brushwork and a variety of tools besides brushes to create shapes and interesting marks. A variety of materials including dowels, bottle caps, plastic, foil, yarn, string, sponges, pieces of wood, stones, and other objects will be used to play with the paint to further develop your painting.
Join this creative class as we jump into the vortex, unbounded by rules. This form of painting will open the gates to your intuition and creativity and enable you to be completely free to play with color and texture in a way that connects you with your inner being. You will be amazed at how intuitive and creative you really are!
