The new year is always a time when I renew my commitment to creative practices. I’m looking forward to offering new mixed media workshops in January in my studio in Sebastopol. Hope you can join in the fun!
Here’s a sample of activity in the Monday Muse Group last week. We were spraying acrylic paint over stencils and other resist methods and developing the pieces with collage and more paint, and drawing, and whatever came to mind and hand!
These workshops are not just about learning mixed media techniques. They’re also about giving voice to creative ideas, empowering messages, expressions of sometimes whacky independence of spirit. It’s the Muse energy that is shared by the group, removing some of the onus of lonely artistic performance.We laugh a lot, and then get pretty serious about what’s happening on the paper. Then laugh some more, or even cry a bit, and always, feel the potency of art making in a group.
Here’s the schedule for the winter session. You may want to register before the classes fill. More information about registering can be found on my website.
