Exploration and Discovery in Intuitive Art
April 26, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm MST
Artist and teacher Anne-Marie Read will lead participants to better understand what it means to create truly Intuitive Art.
Through exploration, reflection and reconstruction, you’ll learn to stretch your capacity, to step outside your comfort zone, and gain confidence in the use of goal-free approaches in the creation of art.
Join us on: April 26, 2021 5:00 -7:00 Pacific Tim, 6:00-8:00 Mountain, 7:00-9:00 Central, 8:00-10:00 Eastern

- Pliable surfaces on which to draw, apply paint, or glue collage or mixed media (e.g., paper, card stock, cardboard, or poster board) ranging in size from small (e.g., 4 X 6) to large (e.g., 12 X 18) and anywhere in between;
- Drawing materials (e.g., charcoal, conte crayons, wax crayons, colored pencils, chalk or oil pastels, pen and ink).

Arrange for suitable lighting.
If possible, locate a workspace near a wall or bulletin board where you can tape or pin your pieces of intuitive art.
In the evening before our Intuitive Art Session, relax and consider all the possibilities of light, color, texture, effects, feelings, etc. from which your intuitive art might emerge.
