Rip apart paper and start pasting. Decorative papers and old magazines and books will be available. Start with the basic bowl shape and go from there by building up layers of newsprint to create your work of art! The second workshop is all about finishing and decorating with fancy papers and imagery from books and magazines. Easy and fun! Goo (flour paste) is supplied.

PAINTING FROM THE FIRE WITHIN

Gail Baker

Process Painting is done in an environment where criticism is absent, where the painter is free from constraints. Intuitive spontaneous painting is a practice of releasing habits and honoring opportunities as they arise in the painting process and in life. Paint for the joy of the moment and/or to explore emotions and life changes. Paint in rhythm with your breath. Give yourself quiet, non-judgmental creative space and attention to your process. Receive respectful guidance, instruction, and support. This class will allow participants to be present with brush, paint, and paper. It approaches art as a tool for self-discovery, awareness, and renewal. You will not paint from images but from the astonishing resource of your own original expression. Paint silently using a gorgeous, liquid palette of professional grade tempera paint on full sheets of watercolor paper with soft brushes. Students will leave this workshop knowing what it means to stay with themselves and their paintings through thick and thin. Tools are offered to deepen the approach to working with images that come up. No experience necessary! Please bring a notebook and pen.
