Intuitive Painting & Collage: Botanical Whimsy with Winged, Feathered or Furry Friends

Instructor: Susan Miller

Class Code: SM190727

Workshop Fee: $120

Medium: Mixed Media

Saturday, July 27, 10:00am – 5:00pm

Journey into the creative process that will deepen your understanding and connection with yourself and your art-making. No matter what your skill level is, you will open up to the freedom of being fully in tune with your inner artist voice.

You will learn how to:

• Use different mediums in your art-making such as acrylic inks/paints, spray paints and papers.

• Build a background in layers using lots of juicy inks and paint, stencils, handmade stamps, colorful collaging and natural objects!

• Use a wide range of unconventional tools such as sticks, leaves, bubble wrap, drywall tape, scratching tools and corrugated cardboard to create dynamic textures and patterns

• Paint and collage animals, birds, or insects with botanical images in your beautiful background as a focal point of your painting.

You will go home with a vibrant painting and the skills needed to develop an intuitive creative practice that includes reflection, inspiration, color, and joy!
