These techniques will free up your creativity by staying spontaneous, abstract and organic.

"The Art of the Sketchbook"
July 24, 2020
 

Let's face it - life gets busy and studio time can be hard to come by. The key to maintaining a healthy studio practice lies in the sketchbook. This class explores the sketchbook as a portable art studio, a place to 'play' like nobody's watching, and a way of recording your personal process. Together, we'll embark on a creative journey starting with non-traditional warm-up exercises and resulting in standalone abstract works in your personal sketchbook. We'll explore color mixing, palette building, creative prompts, doodling, paint application and collage. Learn to take risks and work out ideas before starting on a big canvas. Most importantly, you'll learn to love the process in addition to the end result.

"Expressive Landscape Painting"
July 25, 2020

This workshop is rooted in the formal qualities of landscape painting and uses these principles as means to abstract. The first half of the workshop will be spent exploring automatic drawing techniques, compositional studies, and non-traditional color palettes. The later half will be spent working on a larger, more involved painting. The sequential layout of this class will give students the tools and confidence to take chances and make informed decisions on the canvas.

During these challenging times, all over the world, we are faced with uncertainty. Uplift your spirit, understand yourself better, relax and express yourself, fear, adjustments to isolation. These new circumstances upsurge feelings of depression, anxiety, self-doubt, grief, insomnia, addiction. An uplifting, constructive and relaxing alternative is Therapeutic Art. A session can help you sort out thoughts, heal, grow, and serve as a positive alternative to boredom, or obsessive negative thoughts. Creating art, it’s natural! No art experience is necessary, and if you do not have art materials a pencil and paper will suffice. It is an online session, real time interaction. Cristiana is an experienced artist therapist who is extending this prospect due to the current difficult times.
