An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until October 23, 2018
Tuesdays (6 Sessions)
This course will appeal to painters of any level, from “brave beginners” to seasoned painters who wish to rekindle their relationship to their inner muse. Laurie offers you an opportunity to explore, experiment, create and play with acrylic paint and a variety of mixed media and collage. Utilizing an assortment of “loosening up” exercises, she will assist you in finding your own, unique mark. Over six weeks, you will venture deeper into your painting process and develop your personal expression in a safe, non-judgmental and playful space. Demonstrations of techniques throughout the course will give you extra tools to assist you in your exploration. These will include collage, creating stamps, linocut prints and transfers, texture creation and more!
