Get wild with us! Bring your courage, your curiosity, your love of creating for
this 3-day intensive abstract acrylic workshop. This workshop is chock full of learning,
exploring, delving, trusting, getting wildly creative. You will be guided in a series
of structured loosening up exercises, incorporating both painting and drawing, using
acrylic paint and a variety of drawing tools in the creation of non-objective abstract
paintings. You will gain courage, build trust in your artistic choices, grow your
skills of design, explore your own inner painting language and nurture your creative
spirit. Plenty of free painting time as well. Come prepared to rediscover the art
of play and tap into your inner wildness! All levels welcome.
