Service Description

OUR GIFT TO YOU -- SIX 6" x 6" cradled wood panels when you register by May 10. Do you crave a place where creativity knows no bounds, where the unexpected is celebrated, and where play becomes a powerful tool for artistic expression? Welcome to Make Mini Abstracts + The Art of Play – a workshop designed to liberate your creative spirit and redefine your artistic journey. You Will Develop: • Visual Vocabulary: Experiment with simple shapes—lines, dots, splotches, and scribbles—as your core visual vocabulary. Embrace spontaneous gestures and limited colors to express your artistic voice. • Playful Unlearning: Embrace simplicity, learning to work with seemingly basic ideas, and gestures that naturally infuse your art with joy and dynamic movement. • Confident Curiosity: Develop a confident, yet curious, hand, mind, and eye, transforming your studio into a creative laboratory where experimentation and discovery thrive. • Make big impressions with small paintings (from 8” x 8”, up to 24” x 24”). Abstract expressionist art’s hallmark is big… big canvas, big color, big movement. You will explore how to translate the impact of “bigness” to smaller works. The workshop covers: • Expressing your ideas abstractly • Creating abstract art on a small scale • 5 Ways to begin abstract art • Prompts to get you unstuck & moving forward • Using brushes, tools, hands, found objects • How to prep, paint, finish and present on cradled wood panels and canvas. This is your exclusive ticket to a transformative experience, where imagination, originality, and joy intertwine seamlessly with every stroke of your artistic expression. There's nothing else quite like The Art of Play + Make Mini Abstracts. This is for: • All levels of creatives -- beginner to intermediate. • Working in acrylic & water based mixed media. No oil. Registration includes lunch & refreshments. Supply List will be provided upon registration. Limited to 12.
