Winter Mindfulness Open Studio: Drawing, Painting, Mixed Media

$99

with Christopher Reed

Calendar Feb 6, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 8 weeks

No experience required, just curiosity and willingness to tap into uncharted territory! Have you enjoyed drawing or painting in the past and want to continue using supplies you’ve purchased? Perhaps you’re self-taught, or enjoyed art as a child, and can again. Learn to overcome inhibitions and perfectionism, free yourself from judgment, and cultivate your unique style. Experiment with your favorite mediums (pencil, acrylic, tempera, pastel, oil, etc.), enjoy the community of others, and receive individual mindfulness and technical support from your instructor, when you need it. Bring optional floor or table easel, your own supplies, and something to transport them. Chris graduated from Bowdoin College with a BA in Visual Arts. He’s a painter, exhibitor, and art teacher inspired by the synthesis of nature, the evolving play of light, and each artist’s unique, mindful expression of feelings and interpretation: www.christopherdreed.com
