Join me as we revisit our 8 year old inner child as we give ourselves permission to play. We will learn to let go and have fun as we get messy with color and mark making. We will paint intuitively and embrace the mistakes and happy accidents as they happen. Once those mistakes are brought forth we can celebrate and use them as a catalyst for direction. The work begins to speak to us. We react. We respond with quick movements and subtle mark making. We are here to create from a place of not worrying about the outcome. We aren’t bodies creating “something”. We are souls creating what’s inside, that which is wanting so desperately to get out. There is no better medicine and healing than finding yourself in a mark….in a combination of color….in a shape. We will explore and pull out that which you may not have known was inside!
We will create beautiful mixed media paintings on wood boards. On the 2nd day we will devote our time to putting the finishing touches on our paintings as well as create some mixed media art tags. We will work quickly on a 2-3 pieces at a time. This dance between the surfaces serves as a catalyst for perspective and non-attachment.
Please bring a couple xerox copies of you as a child (if you have one) measuring from 5-6” tall. If you don’t have a childhood photo, you can bring a more recent favorite photo copy. The photo can be black/white or in color….whatever you prefer.

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