The Passion of Painting: Get In, Get Out, Get On With It!

Mar 19 - 24, 2017 Begins in 6 months
with Erin Gafill with Tom Birmingham

How much more could you create if you weren't second-guessing yourself, or walking away from the easel too soon? During this workshop, you can learn tricks and practices to bring you back, including working in a series, setting a timer, and working with house-painting brushes and torn paper collage. Experiment and have fun with exercises that take twenty minutes or less. By utilizing short blocks of focus and surprising methods, you can awaken creative thinking and move into perceiving and expressing instead of overanalyzing.
