Intuitive Painting and Mixed Media
with Jennifer Laurel Keller
February 23 – 25, 2018
Friday, Saturday & Sunday, 10:00am to 4:00pm
Do you feel like deep down you know that there's healing creative energy within you that wants to emerge through simply moving paint around on a canvas and playing with papers, fabrics, and other interesting mixed media materials? Through the intuitive art-making process process you will learn to let go and trust your inner guidance in order to create beautiful and soul enriching paintings. This course will take you from blocked and overwhelmed to manifesting gorgeous pieces that resonates with your spirit. It's like feng shui for your art.
Beginners welcomed! Most of the materials are provided - including professional grade Golden Fluid Acrylic paint!
Day 1. Inspiration Clinic
Introductory lesson on the power of intuition and how to overcome fear. You’ll let your cares melt away with a guided meditation about tapping into your inner guidance. Find inspiration from your passions and signature style with insightful journaling exercises. Learn about the four areas of artist’s block and how to overcome them. We’ll go on an “Alice in Wonderland” inspirational photo walk. Have fun with some back-to-basics art making studies to warm up your creative mind. Everyone will get both personal creativity coaching and enjoy group discussions.
Day 2. Mixed Media Magic with Found Objects
Explore the mystery of found objects, fabric, and paper collage. By combining different discarded materials in a creative way you have the ability to give old, interesting objects a new life and a personal touch. Learn the Dos and Don'ts of selecting materials so your pieces don't fall apart. Design a balanced piece that doesn't appear too busy or distracting. We’ll use the right adhesives to create strong bonds without any harsh fumes. Learn more about Golden Fluid Acrylics through brushwork, dripping, stamping, and even finger painting. You’ll learn a bit of color theory, composition, and tricks for creating texture and adding depth so your work doesn't appear flat. In the end we’ll tie things together so your work appears more seamless with personal touches that resonate with your soul.
Day 3. Let Go and Layer: Acrylic Intuitive Depth
Learn my “Windows to the Soul” techniques for letting go and layering acrylic paint to create rich depth and texture. We’ll build on our mixed media skills with lots more paint! Through letting go of attachments and control of the outcome, a beautiful painting will emerge simply by trusting yourself. The lessons of intuitive painting apply off the canvas, as well, and will expand into your everyday life. Take your color mixing skills to the next level with more practice. You will relax by allowing yourself to paint freely and let go. You can watch a time lapse video of this process here.
