Whether you have never set a brush to canvas, or are an experienced painter wanting to explore, this day will be a gift to your Creative Self. This is not a class or workshop intended to teach technique but rather an opportunity for you to see how I approach my recent work and try it yourself.
We will be working with acrylics on 2 x 2′ wood panels, starting with random marks and “smooshes” and letting that lead to imagery. More info on this process here. Leslie’s process
I will offer guidance and be painting along with the group.
Each session starts at 10, and wraps up around 4:30. Lunch will be provided and Dennis will join us with his perspectives on art making.
Sessions currently scheduled are: Sun. Aug 14 & Sat. Sept. 17
Limited to 4 participants per session.
$135 covers all materials and lunch.Contact Leslie to register <mailto:email@example.com?subject=Paint%20Day%20registration>
