Andrea Beloff

Inner Peace Workshop is led by Andrea Beloff with the intention of experiencing INNER PEACE from the simplicity and introspective quality of this guided art project of painting with one kitchen tool and with 4-5  acrylic color paints. Painting with a spoon! This is a new technique Andrea stumbled upon accidentally but with genius and limited tools. The basic approach made it a technique that she could easily share and have you achieve the same magical inner experience of joy and peace. Allow her to take you on this journey. No experience necessary. Really!

Christine Otis

Visual Communication: What’s Inside the Frame?
What does it mean to communicate visually? This workshop will explore the ways in which we communicate visually using various sized frames to convey a message while also exploring perspectives. Using an artist’s eye, with macro lens ideas, she’ll explore the opportunities of our curious nature to decide what will end up in the frame using paper or canvas.

Susan Alexander Shipman

Susan Alexander Shipman is an award-winning painter who has studied with master painters throughout the country and whose work is in many corporate and individual collections throughout the world.

Today, one is totally oversaturated with millions of photo images while the human eye and heart see a great deal more than a camera. To paint from life, we need to slow down and look carefully at what is beautiful, lovely and uplifting.

Susan invites a limited number of individuals to participate in Alla Prima Painting, a meditative method of painting directly from life, which includes still life painting. This hands –on, individualized watercolor workshop will take place in her peaceful working art studio and gallery, surrounded by her paintings.

All experience levels welcome.

Up to 10 participants
Cost $20
