Abstract 101    |    Level 1   

Saturday October 6, 2018 9 am- 12 pm  |     Limited to 12
Morning Workshop for those without abstract experience looking to learn the foundations of Abstract Art- beginner level.

Ever see an abstract art piece on Pinterest and think," I could totally do that!" only to end up with a huge mess on your kitchen table? You aren't alone! Abstract art is harder than it looks and I'm here to guide you through painting your own original composition and  each attendee will leave class with their own 12"x 12" painting.  This is a beginner level class; no painting experience is required. Grab a friend or come on your own and join us
 for a really fun workshop and beautiful event that you'll be talking about for months to come!


Class includes:

Cocktail mingle
All art supplies-
 Art starter kit swag bag
Snacks and beverages

COST: $225

While we paint, we can discuss any burning questions you have about the art world!




Abstract 201   |   Level 2  | Limited to 15 

Saturday October 20, 2018   9am-3 pm

This is a day workshop for practicing artists looking to connect with each other and learn the art of building a rock solid process that keeps your work consistent and takes your art and your business to the next level.

Basically I just created the workshop that I wanted to attend but could never find. Yep. I did- and I'm so excited about this!

Morning: Hands on Process Building Session 9am-12pm

We'll open up with a cocktail mingle and have a morning where we  get our hands messy making some art walking through process and experimenting with new ideas. I talk to so many practicing artists who feel stuck and ask where I get my ideas, how do they keep their work original, and keep fresh ideas coming? Well, sweat it no more! I've pulled together some great exercises and materials for a morning of digging deeper into the steps that it takes to build a process that works for you; a place where new concepts flow and lead to the next great idea. It's not complicated, but there really is an art to your artistic process! 


Afternoon: Heart to Heart Table Talk about Marketing 12 pm - 3 pm

Lunch will be catered in and we'll spend 12-3 pm having a cozy heart- to- heart table talk where we'll focus on Marketing and Sales. I'll be answering pre-submitted questions so I can give attendees tailored answers that speak to your specific needs! Marketing is my jam, y'all. I eat this stuff for breakfast and am excited to share all the juicy tidbits I've learned over the years. This will be a day where everyone feels loved on and connected and leaves with a deeper vision for their practice and the confidence to market a more successful art business.
