10 AM - 4 PM
$295 (Supplies not included)
Fearless Metallics Workshop is a modern twist to using metallic paints, powders & gold leaf.
Join professional artist Samantha daSilva as she shares her unique method of painting: Rollers rather than brushes, tables instead of easels, lots of paint and water, canvas manipulation and plaster, salt, sand and wood shavings to create ethereal, textured abstracts.
In addition, heart-centered discussions will be offered to assist you to let go of fear, silence the inner critic, turn up your intuition & explore your own artistic style in a safe, supportive environment including: 6 Questions to Help You Paint Fearless, Compassionate Critiques, How to tell your painting is finished, and so much more!
No previous artistic experience necessary, just an open mind and an open heart.
