Find creative flow through abstract painting

Creating starts in the mind. 

What makes a great abstract painting? It's that "I know it when I see it" element that you can't quite put your finger on. So how do you create that special quality in your own work? You can learn composition and color techniques, but how do you learn, as Picasso phrased it, to turn a yellow dot into the sun?  Painting, like any creative discipline, starts in the mind. This class is designed to help you use abstract painting to explore new ideas and find the creative freedom that will add more magic to art and to your life. 


Finding freedom


Ever heard "my kid could do that" when people talk about abstract art? Next time tell them it's a huge compliment. Children have a natural creativity that we have to work to achieve as adults. I consider this a "beginner" class because it is said that in the mind of a beginner, possibilities are endless, whereas in the mind of an expert, possibilities are few. We must all think like beginners to find creative freedom. If you are an experienced painter, this class can help you...

  • bring more life and authenticity to your personal style. 

  • get inspiration for your next body of work. 

  • enjoy painting again. 

  • learn creative principles that you can apply in other areas of life.  

If you are just starting out, come and play! This is a no judgement zone that is all about trying new things. 

Join me 6 weeks of live group instruction:

Session 1 - Declare your independence
