Intuitive Painting

2h Weekly Workshop

Tuesday At David Charles Boutique Gallery,Jin Qiao Shanghai

10:00am-12:00pm

Includes (most) materials


What is Intuitive Painting? Well I'm so glad you asked! It is a painting style based on letting go and releasing your fear of painting and allowing your inner child to return. It is about removing preconceived restrictions and outcomes from your art, and being able to trust your brush marks and finding the creative child within yourself. It is an unrestricted way to build your confidence as an artist. It aims to develop your skills as a painter by revisiting the basic elements and principles of design, and using that knowledge to make informed choices, as well as embracing accidental marks. It looks at symbolism in other cultures and your own personal symbols which you relate to. It is more about the process and allowing yourself permission to paint under experienced tuition.




Draw. Carve. Stamp. Print. Repeat!

Full Day Workshop!

Printmaking 101! 

Over the workshop you will create a set of your own unique hand-carved stamps. Repeat print your own designs and patterns over and over in your creative endeavours.

Use your new signature designs to develop your own unique brand and style. Create a series of stamps which you can print repeatably in all your projects, giving your piece YOUR

YOU-nique look to your creative project. Embrace this skillful technique to enhance your creative adventure.
