This workshop is a playful exploration of the creative image-making process. Utilizing imagery inspired from our own personal stories and life experience, we will engage in a hands-on exploration of fundamental painting principles. Throughout the week, we will work on a series of small paintings on wood panels, often working on several pieces simultaneously, leaving little time to worry about success or failure. We will also explore how themes of change and spontaneity enable us to create our own unique artwork, and illuminate life lessons inherent in the creative process. We seek to engage both sides of the brain, inviting mistakes, intuition, and spontaneity, along with our knowledge of the six Artplane principles: value, design, color, texture, risk, and soul. Generous time will be given for experimentation with new tools, mediums, and techniques. Join us as we celebrate a process of inspiration, reclamation, and the journey of self-discovery through painting. This workshop is designed for people from a wide variety of disciplines. All skill levels are welcome. For more information, visit www.artplaneworkshop.com.
