Instructor: Liz Awalt
Monday - Friday
9am - 12pm
What’s holding you back? You know you want to loosen up as a painter but, for some reason it’s just not happening. In this workshop, loosening up will be our goal! We’ll explore abstraction, still life, and landscape in your choice of acrylic or oil paint. Large brushes, paint rollers, palette knives and paint scrapers will enable you to break out of old habits and dive into new ones. Painting and drawing experience is necessary, as I won’t cover fundamentals. Come prepared to explore, get messy, and enjoy the process.
