The Experience Painting Project
This workshop will lead you through a series of short kinesthetic exercises designed to give you a taste of the pleasures of moving paint around on large surfaces, mixing colors, using your body as a mark-making tool and enjoying working with others. We will emphasize body awareness, suspending judgment and worry, embracing mistakes, relaxation and flow. Where does your creative expression productively meet others in the context of community? This workshop is appropriate for anyone with any amount of experience. Wear paint-friendly clothing.
