Intuitive Painting 4-week Course

with Caro

Tuesdays, May 17 & 24th, June 7th & 14th

from 6-8pm

Come paint with Caro!
Join us for a 4-week workshop series, centered on the practice of intuitive painting. Caro (moonbox coordinator and bean behind the product labels that make you giggle) will be guiding us to art by way of connecting with the self, with memory, with sensation and with feeling. We will be exploring the ways in which feeling perhaps matters more than the facts of the way things look when making art, letting the piece unfold and reveal itself over time instead of trying to control what it looks like or where it goes. We will be experimenting with three different process-based art forms over four weeks, culminating in a little gallery gathering on the summer solstice in June.
Join us for experimentation, flow, joy and community.
Tuition is a sliding scale of $30-$50 per class, so ~$120-$200 for the series, plus a $20 material fee. It is encouraged for participants to attend all four classes. The classes are open to drop-ins. Reach out to Caro for questions or other accommodations: carozobservations@gmail.com
