The Accidental Masterpiece, April 2019

Striving for perfection leads to paralysis! Let go and allow your art to take place without preconceived notions. The journey an artist strives for is to arrive at a place where discoveries happen. Leave your comfort zone, and enter a world of exciting and expressive painting. Give yourself permission to play! This class will focus on paintings that have light, color and attitude! Working on various grounds, we will explore shapes, edges, patterns of light and dark, positive and negative space, bold vs. neutral color, underpainting techniques, and fearless mark making to push your paintings further. Learn to simplify your approach, and develop a personal style where happy accidents are welcome! Individual attention and group discussions of student work and contemporary painting practices.
You bring the supplies you want to work with. Bring what you can afford! Don’t worry if you don’t have everything!
ALL MEDIUMS, including mixed media.
