This acrylic painting workshop is a homage to art history. It involves a little technique and creative exploration! The program entitled “Intro to Creativity” will be a chance for artists, young and old of any level to tap into new processes using acrylic paint. The Arts Warehouse, 313 NE 3rd Street in Delray Beach fine art education class will explore this session's theme inspired by surrealist, Joan Miró. Instructor Beverly Manning will lead this class and guide pupils through Miro’s painting techniques incorporated to make some of his most famous works.
The primary goal of this workshop is to give an opportunity for students to learn, explore, relax, and enjoy painting. While everyone is encouraged to take this workshop, it was designed with three specific types of people in mind:
- Those who have never painted before.
- Those who feel like their creativity is being blocked.
- Those who just are curious to explore something new.
Before starting the workshop, the instructor will introduce a meditation technique meant to open the imaginative mind. The goal is to guide each student with a specific intention and subliminally influence their painting style. Get ready to get creative!
- All materials provided.
- The deadline to register is February 4, 2022, at 5 PM.
- If you have further questions, please give Arts Warehouse a telephone call at 561-330-9614.
