Immerse yourself in the creative process, let go of inhibitions and allow your art to take shape by responding to the present moment! We use mediums that allow the process of creation to unfold, expressing your own inner beauty. Each painting is a journey within and will be unique, just like you are. Experiment with a variety of inks and other mediums to move colour on stone paper, canvas, wood, and glass, giving unusual results. Mix in other media such as acrylic paint, gesso, layering, collage, and more to explore even more options. Come express yourself through this abstract approach... it's so much fun! No experience is necessary, just an open heart and mind.
Audience: This workshop is suitable for adults and teens with all level of experience including no experience at all! I have found even advanced artists can enjoy letting go and discovering a different way of expression while beginners and young people often come with an open attitude that lends itself well to this technique.
Supplies: All supplies are included. Please bring a lunch, snack and water bottle.

Growing up in the west coast rain forest shaped Barb’s appreciation for nature's beauty. Living and working in the Rocky Mountain foothills inspires 'dreamy landscapes' using acrylic inks, vibrant abstracts with alcohol inks and collage using handmade and natural materials all informed by nature. Barb believes that her job as an artist is to be in the moment and pay attention to images that tell her how they need to unfold. Music and spontaneous dancing in the studio help release emotion onto the canvas, creating an expressive image. Her hope is that you as the viewer will sense a connection to these images!
