I couldn't have asked for a better introduction: My first ! ! SOLD OUT ! ! 2-day Fearless Abstract Painting workshop at the Kimball Art Center in Park City, UT was a huge success. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my techniques & philosophies with such an enthusiastic, grateful and receptive audience.
Join me for a second workshop on October 5 & 6. For more information & to register:
There are some workshops that leave me feeling simply... edified. Teaching at Swinton's Art Supply in Calgary, Canada was exactly that. I wish I would have gotten more pictures of the incredible work that the students made during our time together. Truly, it was really, REALLY amazing work. Thank you to all of the incredible souls who participated and contributed to making these workshops a massive success.
14 FearLESS artists. 5-days of Fearless Abstract Painting w/ Metallics at Summer Series Art School in Red Deer, Alberta. After a 3-year absence from Canada, I am honoured to teach amongst my Canadian friends once again. Thank you for your openness, your receptivity, and your willingness to go deep, and confront the fears that keep us from expressing the best versions of ourselves on and off the canvas.
I am on cloud 9! We've just completed day-2 of our FearLESS abstract painting workshop at the University of Utah. What transpired during this workshop is nothing short of "magic'.
Student Question: Hi Samantha. I am registered in your workshop in Red Deer, Canada. I am wondering what type of gel medium and moulding paste we need? Light, medium or heavy? Also, what type of gold leaf powders do you use? I also like metallic leaf. Is there opportunity to use gold leaf? Can we use fluid acrylics rather then tube?
Day One of my first Fearless Abstract Painting Workshop at the University of Utah. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share my passion for painting with my new community.

Join me back at The U on December 7 for an entire workshop on how to make your own mediums. Fearless DIY!!
