Intuitive Painting In Watercolor and Mixed Media

June 7, 8, 9, 10, 2020 at the Inn at Ormsby Hill,  Manchester VT


Welcome to the world of creativity and semi-abstraction!!!  Intuitive painting delves into our thought process and our minds.  It is surprising to see the beautiful results that occur when we allow ourselves the freedom to create intuitively!

 

Have you been looking for a different kind of art class?  One where YOU decide what to paint and how to paint it?  Are you trying to learn something totally new that you can add to what you already know about painting?  Immerse yourself in art with this art retreat!  It is designed to stretch you as an artist.  

 

Composition and design will be at the forefront while creating semi-abstract paintings that you will develop in class.  You will have the ability to use mixed media materials in your art.  If you have wanted to explore different media then this class is for you!  We will combine our watercolor with acrylic and collage.  We will also use stencils, pastes, C'aran Dache watercolor crayons, pastels, ink and hand colored papers.   In each class I will be suggesting different formats, mediums and compositions while guiding you on your painting experience.  I will be here to help you along the way.  I hope you decide to join us.  Call to reserve a space.  If you are a beginning artist or an experienced pro, this class is sure to stretch you in ways you never imagined.  

So, let your creativity soar!!!  Come paint with Clare Godleski and new friends and use your own creativity to lead the way!!!
