Tracy Verdugo, Instructor
Dates June 14-18, 2018 (9am-4pm)
Materials Fee: $0
Imagine. Explore. Create.
Over 5 days of discovery and play, we will explore new ways to make art, learn to
be inspired in every moment and realize that there are no mistakes in the creative
process, only opportunities to learn and grow! We will spend our time creating
paintings and mixed media pieces spontaneously, balancing an intuitive and
considered approach with an open mind and a curious perspective!
During this 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, charcoal, collage, ink and pastels.
She will gently guide you into your own personal creative flow and help you find
ways to recognise your own authentic creative voice. The class will delve into
elements of both abstraction and more realistic interpretation and students will be
encouraged to focus on what interests them most.
For those who have attended a workshop with me before (either
online or in person), please know that my classes (and I!) are always
evolving. As I grow and expand in my own art practice I am always
excited to share new discoveries and passions with my students! The
new longer format allows us to dive deeper AND into the gorgeous
possibilities that acrylic inks offer us. Using nature, memory AND our
imaginations, we will work not only on a large canvas, but also on
multiple watercolour sheets examining both abstraction and more
literal aspects of this style of painting.
As of 10/2 this workshop is full. Only balance payments may still be made.
