The Intuitive Approach


The more we paint like ourselves the more our work connects with others. This workshop is about daring to risk and going deeper within ourselves to create work that is authentically us. No risk equals more of the same and more of the known, the access way for growth and freshness lies in the vulnerability of risking and embracing the unknown!

Bring your acrylic paints and other materials you like to use and let’s have some fun!

This workshop is suitable for anyone of any level interested in learning an intuitive approach to abstract painting.
