With intuition as guide, come explore various ways to start making a painting, and how to develop it. Through a series of techniques and exercises we will tap into our instinctive self, and ground our art-making in spontaneity and authentic expression. Key will be the practice of gesture and improvised mark-making to generate a new vocabulary unique to each artist, using relaxed prompts like responses to music. Compositions will evolve as a result of relationships of elements in the work, and will be encouraged to take on a life of their own! Come break new ground and take those steps to create from a new place of reference.
