We, as artists, want to create art with meaning. We want our work to connect with the viewer in a way that is memorable.
Connecting with your inner spirit is where your deepest work lives. It is in this mysterious place that houses your unique artistic voice.
Finding and connecting with this voice is the mission of each artist.
In this workshop we will delve deep into how to find and connect with your artistic voice and then how to develop it into your distinctive style.
This will be accomplished by:
- Knowing the most important thing to do before picking up your brush
- Learning how to become one with the painting
- Developing strong design
- Discovering the meaning of colors so your painting supports your vision
- Fostering sensuality via neutrals and edges.
You will learn in a very supportive environment. Gwen has taken a very sad 100 year old Adobe home and refurbished her back to her glory. Surrounded by 6 and 8 ft walls this is now an exquisite compound filled with gorgeous flowers, Mexican gates and a studio where the retreat will be held.
Wilson, the gentle Sable German Shepherd, will welcome you with his noble presence. Wilson loves everyone who comes to create.
Lunch will be provided all five days
Sunday evening, before the workshop begins, there will be a wine and cheese get together. This is a fun filled evening getting to know everyone plus selecting your space for the workshop.
On Thursday evening, you will be treated to a magnificent sit-down dinner that takes place under the stunning New Mexico sky. The table will be decorated in cobalt blue and luscious lime green, flowers picked from the garden and flickering candles add to the laughter and sharing that makes this evening one to remember.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about the workshops/retreats.
