Studio in a Box with Pat Wheeler

Thursday, July 18, 10-4

 This will be an exploration of painting from your intuitive side. In this workshop, Pat will introduce students to a personal, portable studio box to be used to create small, intuitive abstract works on paper. Pat uses her box,

filled with watercolor paper blocks, acrylics, photo transfers,stamps, stencils and other tools to process memories and personal experiences into complex small paintings that can be framed or used as studies for larger works. In this

workshop students will receive a studio box to be personalized and an 8x8 water color block with which to create multiple paintings. Pat will emphasize working in a series to create a private vocabulary of symbols and images that enable the

artist to integrate, center, invigorate, stimulate and restore creativity andoriginality in their work. Participants should bring lunch, snacks and drinks as desired. A list of supplies will be provided upon registration. $135
