Donna Downey Studios is very excited to have the amazingly talented Tracy Verdugo teach her Paint Mojo Workshop April 25-26th 2015


Over two days of discovery and play, we will explore new and non-threatening ways to make art, learn to be inspired in every moment and realize that there are no mistakes in th creative process, only opportunities to learn and grow! We will spend our time creating paintings and mixed media pieces spontaneously and intuitively, with no expectations, a wholehearted approach and an open mind!

In this two-day workshop, we will learn to find our own inner muse, reconnect with our creative selves and find inspiration for our art in unexpected places. With a focus on gratitude, letting go of our inner critic and playful exploration, Tracy will guide you through a series of fun, playful, exercises, encouraging you to become an explorer of possibilities. Tracy will share tips and techniques on creating vibrant, expressive, colourful paintings, using acrylics, collage, ink and pastels. She will gently guide you into your own personal creative flow and help you find ways to recognize your own authentic creative voice

Workshops Policies
Half-day, full-day, multi-day workshops, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. Once you purchase a workshop you will be enrolled.

If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to and you will be put on a waiting list.

Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable.

What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.

Emergency Cancelations
In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.
