Three day Paint Mojo workshop with Tracy Verdugo in Shreveport, LA
$650USD | May 8th to 10th, 2020
My 2020 US workshops will include elements of some of my online classes such as Abstract Mojo and Face Fascination.
In my ever expanding Paint Mojo workshop we take inspiration from a diverse array of sources, hone our own unique creative voice and tell the stories we are here to tell. During our Shreveport Workshop I’ll share with you an array of techniques but more than that invite you into the beauty of your own way of seeing the world, help you find ways to loosen up and embrace limitless possibilities in your art making through mixed media, word, acrylic ink and paint, collage and bold and playful mark making. Together we’ll move through any stuck places and find freedom, looseness and a new way forward through creative exploration, taking a look at both multi-layered and more simplified approaches to art making.
We will also be having a very special meet & greet on the Thursday night with wine and nibbles <3
A Little More Info...
Are you ready to tap into your own wellspring of luscious creativity?
Here’s what I want you to know... When you take a class with me it’s not even just about the art. It’s about the whole shebang. Art as a metaphor for life. It’s about you finding your voice in the world, feeling at ease within your own skin and doing what you came here to do. Create beauty and allow your gifts to shine. That’s my gift to you and I feel blessed and honored to be a catalyst for you to lead your most inspired life.
We will create multiple works on paper and/or canvas and I will show you how I utilize a viewfinder to find small sweet spots in larger works among many other things! For those who have attended a workshop with me before (either online or in person), please know that my classes (and I!) are always evolving. As I grow and expand in my own art practice I am always excited to share new discoveries and passions with my students! The new longer format allows us to dive deeper AND into the gorgeous possibilities that acrylic inks offer us. Using nature, memory AND our imaginations, we will work not only on a large canvas, but also on multiple watercolor sheets examining both abstraction and more literal aspects of this style of painting.
No Paint Mojo Workshop is the same! ❤
Once we confirm there is a spot available for you, we will send through the payment form. Places are held for 48 hours only, then you will need to register your interest again.
My experience of your online classes and in person classes is this: You are authentic, grounded, vulnerable and generous. No hype, just great techniques from a lovely person. But there is more. There is an idea in spirituality of "transmission." From a great spiritual teacher there is a transmission of spiritual experience or knowledge. From you I have such a profound transmission of creativity. You are connected to a deep creative well and that has been your gift to me. You have connected me to a creative source that I had no experience of and no idea existed. After the Whidbey mojo course I created for 48 hours straight in a way I never have before. I believe I was elevated in my creative self, not so much by the teaching or techniques but by the exposure to a creative person with a clear and strong intention to help others find that creative source.
Artist, author, and Inspiration Instigator.
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”.
When she is not hanging out with her family in their artsy adobe home in a small village on the shores of Jervis Bay, Australia, or throwing paint around in her little purple studio in their backyard, you may find her wrangling with two large suitcases attempting to board the BART in San Francisco en route to teach at an art retreat or sitting in a circle on St Pete Beach, Florida, listening intently as women share their stories of creative longing.
Her works are vibrant and filled with joy, inspired both by family travels in Mexico and the beauty of everyday life. Since 2000 Tracy has held 16 successful solo exhibitions and her works are held in collections both in Australia and overseas.
Mostly though, she is mama bear to two gorgeous, zest-filled daughters, Santana and Cece, and co-adventurer in life with her amor of 34 years, the talented and brilliant Marco.
