Creative Intuitive Painting

Wednesday, 10/5/2022
10:00AM-12:00PM  
Instructor: Carolyn Faulkner 
CAM member: $116; Not-yet-member: $145 
Loosen up, let go, and learn how to paint from intuition. No technique to learn, no self judgment or criticism allowed! Class begins with an inspiring reading and then a guided meditation to lead you into your painting. Using professional tempera paints and a variety of paint brushes and other objects to paint with, you will choose a color and a brush that you are drawn to and go back and forth to the table for new colors and paint tools each time you are ready. This class opens you up to so many things other than painting freely. Unblock your spirit and your mind! No painting experience necessary but professionals will benefit from this class also.
