"Painting from the Heart"
April 17-19, 2020
 

What makes a painting memorable? What makes you want to enter, explore and never leave that two-dimensional surface? Why does it touch your heart? Using a series of freeing exercises, we will delve into this idea. Learn to create a dialogue with the painting where you are responding to the painting rather than following the photo's plan for you. Learn that your memory is your greatest asset as it unlocks the door to your personal vision. Open up and allow it to rule. Through it you can enter the journey of making your work a more personal experience.
