Monday April 24th 10:00am - 7:00pm (Lunch provided around Noon - delivered from a local restaurant.)
1. Start with acrylic inks and fluid paints to develop a beautiful rich field of color.
2. Create unique shapes of color across the canvas to develop movement and energy.
3. Add bold splashes of color by splattering and pouring paint from 5+ feet above the canvas and allow gravity to pull your paint into a beautiful orchestration that couldn't be achieved by any other means.
4. layer in gold leaf to diversify your composition with new color, texture, and reflective quality.
5. Add drips to boost the variety of mark making which adds such an amazing energy to your work.
6. Follow your heart and imagination and find yourself smiling after completing the most unique painting of your life. A statement painting that will proudly hang in your favorite place for years to come.

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.
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.
