From Life to Art: Infusing Meaning into Your Art

4-Week Class
Saturdays, August 14 – Sept. 4
11:00 am – 1:00 pm (PDT) / 2:00-4:00 pm Eastern
Live Class on Zoom

Sometimes it’s rewarding to make art for the joy of it and for simply creating artistic beauty. When you create art with the intention or attaching meaning, your artwork not only has more depth, but it also becomes more meaningful to you during the creative process. The term “meaning-making,” is a psychological concept to which one is seeking a deeper understanding of a life event, a place or simply a technique. Whatever the meaning or intention behind what you’re creating, becomes infused in your creation.

Join me as we approach art making in a different and unique way. In this 4-week workshop, you will have an opportunity to select what meaning or intention you would like to explore through art making.  By first collecting resource material, whether that be going out and photographing or using existing images, we will begin to extract the essence of your meaning or intention. Through the use of a color palette, mixed media techniques, collage and more, we will create an abstract translation. You will have the option to create a series of small pieces or a few larger pieces. Whatever size you feel is calling to you.

This workshop is for those who have had mixed media, acrylic painting & color mixing experience. Adults 18+

Make sure to review the materials list to determine what you will need for the class.

If you are unable to make any of the classes, no worries, I will be recording each session so they will be available for later viewing during the duration of the class, plus a week after the class has ended.

This class is available to take as a Non-Zoomer Option (See below for more information).
