“What I really, really want is to paint the world in rainbows of possibility……”~ Tracy Verdugo

If Tracy Verdugo was given the opportunity to coin a term for a new art movement based around what she teaches she might call it “Curiosity and Wonderism” or maybe “Loosen-upism” or “Endless possibilitism”.

In this workshop, we will learn to find our own inner muse, reconnect with our creative selves and find inspiration for our art in unexpected places. With a focus on gratitude, letting go of our inner critic and playful exploration, Tracy will guide you through a series of fun, playful exercises, encouraging you to become an explorer of possibilities.

Tracy will share tips and techniques on creating vibrant, expressive, colourful paintings using acrylics, collage, ink and pastels. She will gently guide you into your own personal creative flow and guide you through the elements of design, colour and composition in both figurative and abstract works. During the workshop we will also look at creating personal symbols and imbuing your art with sense of meaning.

Over our days of discovery and play, we will explore new and non threatening ways to make art, learn to be inspired in every moment and realize that there are no mistakes in the creative process, only opportunities to learn and grow! We will spend our time creating paintings and mixed media pieces spontaneously and intuitively, with no expectations, a wholehearted approach and an open mind!

No previous art experience is required for this workshop, just a willingness to learn and to be open to the possibility that we are all creative souls capable of beauty and wonder.
