I’m excited to share the title and description of the workshop that I will be teaching during the upcoming 6 Degrees of Creativity 2 online workshops!

Feeling your Art: 

Exploring Texture and Process

When was the last time you gave yourself complete permission to simply play with art materials and get lost in the exploration process? Textural art naturally entices viewers and artists alike and invites interaction and spontaneity. In this workshop you will be introduced to a variety of techniques for creating texture in your art using acrylic mediums, modeling pastes, gels, and palette knives. You will create textural ‘playgrounds’ for your paint to travel through with the layering of textures, colors, found objects, and any other materials that inspire you. The experimentation process with texture will be framed by suggested ideas and directives that are designed to delight and inspire the eternal child within you.  In this workshop, the process and play drive the work of art.

I have been utilizing texture pastes within my paintings for a number of years and am constantly delighted by the process! I am thrilled to be able to offer this workshop and looking forward to sharing inspiration, creativity, and art-making with you! Here are a few examples of pieces that I have created over the years using texture pastes, collage, and other mixed media techniques! Enjoy and stay tuned for information on registering for 6 Degrees of Creativity 2.
