Expressive painting -week 5


Fifth week of our expressive painting class had lots of energy!


Everyone was busy with their creative ideas and explorations.


The creative process engages the whole person in a pursuit of discovery.


Jackson Pollock expressed that “painting is self-discovery and every good artist paints what he is.”  The participants in our class are truly exploring who they are in their paintings.  That’s a lot of fun to watch and experience.

Week 4 -Exploring acrylic painting

It’s week 4 and the students jumped right into the painting process after a brief critique of their work and suggestions on which direction they may journey into with their painting.

Exploration and adventure into vastness of acrylic painting is on the pallet of tonight’s class.

Pushing the boundaries of what one is comfortable with can open new paths of exploration in painting.

I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them. -Pablo Picasso

The journey into the studio can open up new understanding with just one brushstroke.

Check back next week to view the students’ progress in their journey.
