In this sequel  to Beginner Acrylic Pours, we will focus on "swipes" where paint is poured differently than in the  beginner class, and then swiped using various implements to reveal layers of color. Popular swipe techniques such as Ocean Wave, Starburst, Paper Towel, and spatula swipes will be discussed. Each student will be able to choose their own colors and the swipe technique that appeals to them.  Please bring an small offset spatula (like you ice a cake with) or the instructor will have artist palette knives to experiment with. Materials fee of $30 payable to the instructor in class.

The unmistakable image of a mandala, circle, or life wheel, is a representation of the universe through the use of sacred geometry.

Each piece may resonate with a certain thought, emotion or physical sensation. Presented by artist and yoga teacher Jeannine Burgess, whose own mandala exploration has quite literally, brought her life full circle; combining her mutual loves for decorative painting and healing. In this workshop, Jeannine will lead you through some meditative techniques which calm the nervous system as well as open up creative potential. There will be additional information provided on the energetics of sacred geometry patterns and how they can be used to compliment a relaxation practice. Using watercolor paints, pencils, and pastels on an original template drawn atop the Flower of Life, you will be able to create your own 12x12" mixed-media expression of the universe. This experience is for adults who want to tap into their own creativity as well as calm the body and mind... or for anyone who wants to play with shapes and colors!
