Join European award winning artist Diana Toma in exploring intuitive painting through mixing mediums. This workshop is about letting go of inhibitions and connecting with your own inner creative volcano. Release the fear of painting and learn to express yourself on a large surface, splashing, smudging, layering, unraveling yourself on the canvas, trusting the process, and empowering yourself by learning techniques that offer a new way of approaching your creative journey. This just might change the way you approach painting! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY, ALL LEVELS WELCOME, from first-time painters to advanced professionals. All you need is an open mind. Trust. You are creative already. Bring your own large size canvas (a 36″x48” width recommended) and pay $20 directly to the instructor to use her paint supplies. Visit www.spruillarts.org for more information on European visual artist Diana Toma.
