Acrylic Intuitive Painting


Sunday, August 25    12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Instructor: Shanti George

This 1-day class is perfect for beginners and anyone wanting to experience intuitive painting and learn some exciting painting techniques. You will be guided on how to tune in to your own intuition as you watch lots of demos highlighting several techniques in action. Your creativity will be inspired! Your inner critic will be silenced, and you’ll have a lot of fun using acrylic paint.

You will learn to paint in translucent layers; to incorporate stamping, simple shapes, and imagery; and how to add the finishing details. Take home a completed canvas and lots of ideas to keep you happily painting intuitively.
