Fully Booked. Add your name to WAIT LIST by emailing Bold, colorful, and full of energy; explore creating abstract art.

The mornings include guided exercises and group discussion. Afternoons are time to work independently. Work with acrylic & water-soluble mediums. Work on large unstretched canvas on painting walls, and/or stretched canvas on easels. Take home studies on paper, and a finished abstract on canvas. For beginner to intermediate artists. Registration includes lunch & refreshments. Optional group dinner at Harry’s Roadhouse. Beverly Todd Through large-scale abstract painting, Beverly interprets nature. Connects with ideas. And explores emotion. Her painting process is physical, using hardware-store brushes. Broken sticks. Rags. And hands. To move paint. To add layers. To pull back layers. To drip. To scrape and wipe. And to pull the paint across the surface. Beverly grew up in rural American near Union, Nebr. Often happily lost for hours in the open prairie landscape that inspires her work. Today, she paints in her Santa Fe, New Mexico, studio and takes cues from the high desert landscape. Wanting to give other creatives the same experience, Bev opened Santa Fe Artist Getaway in 2019 - a place for all artists to stay, play, and create. Beverly is a workshop leader and creativity coach, sharing her passion for exploration, adventure, & creativity.
