Process Painting Workshop
My process painting workshop is a tool for mindfulness and self-discovery that is facilitated in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Free from comparison and critique, we embark on a boundless journey into the unknown, with the focus placed on the experience rather than the finished product. There are no mistakes, and no painting experience is necessary. We recognize that every person is a creative being with unlimited potential and that when we show up and tap into that creativity, our unique expressions emerge naturally. While this is not art therapy in the traditional sense, the process itself can be therapeutic. Participants speak of a deeper connection to themselves and a greater acceptance of their experiences. The process is healing on many levels. Being open to growth and facing one’s fears leads to joy and a sense of accomplishment.
Throughout the workshop, I demonstrate many of my personal painting techniques, while creating a large original painting from start to finish. The process is broken down into easy, bite-sized lessons that explore color theory, translucent layering, value contrast, expressive mark-making, dripping, etching, stamping, and drawing. I also offer invaluable prompts and exercises to support letting go, connecting to intuition, taming your “inner critic,” becoming unstuck, and discovering your own authentic style.
