NEW DATES: JUNE 8-JULY 13
Instructor: Colleen Gianatiempo
This class offers a deeply nourishing, soulful jump-start to any creative habit by inviting a whole new way of painting from a space of freedom, non-judgment and experimentation. The focus is on loosening up, tuning into intuition, releasing expectations, and welcoming joyful authentic expression back into your creative process and your daily life. You will experiment with wild abandon with mixed media materials that are outside the box!
Colleen supplies everything you need to create—paint, paper, transfers, collage fragments, mediums, tools, spray paint, pastels, acrylic markers, graphite sticks and more! All you need is a sense of playfulness—and there is no prior experience required. Not only will you ignite your creative soul but you will be exposed to the elements and priciples of art and design.
Materials fee of $25 due to instructor at the start of class.
The deadline for enrolling in this class is Wed June 3. The class may be cancelled if we do not reach minimum enrollment by this time.
