Make your mark! Don't look back! Paint another, and another! During this fast-paced immersion you'll explore creative expression that leaves little time to second guess or over think. You'll find that the most important habit is to get started, then keep moving forward.
The successful artist does not wait for inspiration, but rather maintains a regular practice that keeps skills honed and hands ready. This workshop includes demonstration and hands-on participation. Award-winning Big Sur artist Erin Gafill will lead you down a creative path and set you on your way to making creativity a life-long habit. You'll use torn-paper collage, drawing, sketch, color-field painting, and guided writing exercises in a safe and supportive environment. You'll draw inspiration from still life and Esalen's unique natural environment.
Erin has taught her Passion of Painting workshops on three continents to students of all ages. They are designed for accomplished artists as well as those just beginning their creative journey.
This workshop complements Erin’s 5-day offering, Passion of Painting, Finding Your Way In, scheduled February 3-8, or it can be taken independently.
