Jennifer Mercede – Expressive Painting
Duration of Class: Two Days (12 Hours) // Medium: Drawing + Painting // Skill Level: All
In this expressive painting & drawing class, we will begin with mark making exercises to get you creating outside the box. Through various guided activities, we will practice letting go of the outcome. Learn to be expressive with your strokes. Experiment and let your intuition guide your artistic choices as we create abstract paintings on wood in a safe, encouraging environment. In this class you have permission to play.
Both of my classes will be unique experiences, with a few overlapping ideas and activities. If you are so inclined, feel free to take Doodle Draw as well as Expressive Painting. The fundamentals from day one will be a great resource for the layering techniques explored on day two, though definitely not necessary.
I work and teach very organically, so be prepared to go with the flow!
My classes focus on process. While you may walk away with a piece of art ready to hang on your wall, you may also walk away with a few pieces started & ready to inspire many more hours of creating.

• paint a lot
• paint fast
