The Creative Approach with Cindy Evans, Artist/Instructor

When:  September 7 & 8
Where: SAC
Age: Adults
Fee: Member-$140 /  Non-Member-$155

 

Artists have a special gift, I think we all have unique voices and can speak through our work in wonderful ways. In response to the challenges and joys of creative expression, this workshop will explore some of the unusual creative techniques that can be used to enhance your painting experience.  Specifically, this workshop uses tea staining, imprinting and rice paper collage. Tea staining works much like the long time tradition of tie dying; but uses watercolor paper and tea.  It creates wonderful soft patterns that can be interpreted using imagination to find imagery and develop a painting.  Creating form, shape and texture with watercolor and collage also begins the process of creative discovery.  This second project begins with fun texturizing then relies on the individual artist’s vision to see and develop a painting.

In this workshop we will provide step-by-step instructions for artists who want to jump-start their creative process, walking through these techniques & exercises, and renewing the pursuit of the joy of painting.  So, if you are interested in this creative discovery, come and we’ll do some exploring together. $ 140 Member/$155  non-member
