Think back to your childhood, and the excitement of painting and drawing as a way of learning how to use materials, and discovering all the things you could do with them. Wouldn't it feel great to have that freedom and enjoyment back again? You can, with our Process Paint and Sip night!
"Process painting" and its cousin, Intuitive Painting, use a style of expressive art that focuses on the experience of using color, form, composition, and the properties of paint and mixed media to build layers on a surface, without having a pre-exising idea or attachment to what the end product looks like. We create using a few basic principles that leave room for the spontaneous and the playful to emerge.
Focusing on process, rather than the finished piece, frees us up to explore and experiment, learn and practice the principles of visual art media, and build our own repetoire of creative skills and approaches - all without being afraid of making a mistake, or comparing ourselves to others. Many folks also find this method of painting helps them feel more comfortable and relaxed in the present moment, not to mention energized and delighted!
During the evening, we will:
~ Gather for social time & enjoy your choice of beverages
~ Learn how process- focused painting works, and do some basic warm-up exercises,
~ Enjoy music and free painting time, with guidance from an experienced fine artist,
~ Learn how to talk about our creative experiences, what we learned, and what we appreciate about one another's work in a way that's supportive and encouraging.
Participants will go home with one or more finished pieces, and the knowledge of how to continue a process/intuitive painting practice on their own. We also encourage you to register ahead for future Paint & Sip sessions, so you can continue to get support in developing your creative process.
