    The marvelous thing about intuitive painting is anything goes! This approach to painting is not about learning artistic techniques. It's about losing ourselves, allowing the flow of the creative process to take you into the unknown. You are invited to explore this approach to painting with a sense of playful, openhearted adventure, may you feel more connected and alive as a result. Fee includes some materials, please bring brushes and paints (if you have them)

    Encaustic Painting originated in Egypt around 100-300AD. In the 20th century a student of Kandinsky’s rediscovered encaustic painting, and it has become very popular. Encaustic art is painting with hot wax, and has a softness and depth that you can get with no other painting method. Fee includes encaustic wax, pigments, brushes and tools as well as panels for you to work on -- just show up and create!

    Collage is a fun way to work with many diverse materials. In this class you can explore design and composition with a subject matter of your choice. Barb will call you before the first class and discuss some possible materials you could bring to class. There will be a short brainstorming time during each class to show your work and ask questions and receive helpful comments. We will also explore a few ways to “alter” papers to use in your collage. A supply list will be sent before the class.

    Facilitator: Jaymee Fedor

    One of the best ways to improve your art skills is to work from real life. Explore techniques on your own and under the guidance of the instructor using a live art model. Poses will vary from quick five-minute gestures to a final hour and a half pose.  All levels and media are welcome, so grab your paint, charcoal, pens, or clay and get ready to improve your proportions and work in one of the oldest fine art traditions! Womanspace has some paper and art materials available for use, but a pad of newsprint or large sketch pad is recommended for shorter poses.

    Facilitator: Sue Abare

    This class is for those first timers wanting to experience watercolor or someone who wants to expand beginning skills. Have fun exploring the enchantment of water and paint in their irresistible dance. As with all painting, a little drawing experience is helpful. Feel free to bring supplies you may already have or wait for suggestions on what you may want to purchase. Some basic supplies are furnished. We will discuss preparing paper to paint, brushes and their technique, some color theory - but mostly we will jump in the water, and do it!

    Self-portraiture is a painting tradition that is as old as painting itself! If you’ve never painted a self-portrait before, here’s your chance to create one in a supportive and creative environment. In this class we’ll learn tricks of the trade like skull structure, proportions, value, and color-mixing. Portraits will be painted from a mirror, so bring a prepared canvas or panel and get ready to express yourself! Some paint, paper, and brushes will be provided, but bring your own if you have them!
