Workshop news

BRIO Fine Arts Center     Friday, April 8th,  9:00am to 3:00pm

 "Art, Courage & Creativity II --- Taking it further "

  This second version of the popular one day BRIO workshop hosted by Karen Leeds introduces new activities designed to help novices and experienced artists alike, relax, revive and reinvent themselves.  We still use rich and colorful oil pastels -- and throw in a few delightful twists along the way -- to gently free us from beliefs and habits that may be holding us back.  All materials are supplied; all you need to do is show up.

While there is ample basic technique taught, the emphasis is on creating truly original art by intuition, and on learning to hear, recognize and act upon the inner guidance of your own unique voice.  This session encourages abstract exploration but anything goes; portraits, landscapes or whatever emerges.   This workshop is appropriate for both newcomers and graduates of Karen's other sessions.  $20 fee payable to instructor on day of class covers the cost of supplies.

COST:    $100 plus $20 supply fee
