Description

GO WILD WITH US!   In this memorable 4 Days, Suzanne Jacquot and Julie Schumer will lead you through a series of discussions, demonstrations, structured exercises and personal support to help you learn and explore:

  • tools  and techniques used in the creation of non-objective paintings

  • ways to give your paintings structure and clarity

  • ways to activate and enliven the painting surface

  • how to breakthrough into new territory

  • ways to take your image from chaos to dynamic

  • the power of color through mixing, value and hue

  • your own marks

    You will gain courage, build trust in your own artistic choices, grow your skills of composition, explore your own visual language and nurture your creative spirit.
