The “Collective” Art of Zen Painting
Sunday 23 April
One Day Workshop
In the spirit of what’s at the core of creating art, this new workshop by Jodi Ohl, will truly soothe your artistic soul through a ‘Zen-full’ Painting experience. Go beyond the doodle and work on unique artist grade hard surfaces while exploring how to take your pencil, pen, inks, and acrylics to a new abstract level, using a water media approach. You’ll create amazing surreal flowing shapes and patterns, full of drama and depth while guided by instructor and author, Jodi Ohl.
Recharge your artistic spirit.
Reconnect with inner peace.
Relax. It’s just paint.
Learn to free your mind while unleashing your Zen-ful artistic spirit!
You’ll create using small pieces during the first part of our course as we learn all about our tools, surfaces and the Zen Painting process before diving into creating a beautiful medium sized collection of paintings during the second session. (2-3)
Some of the many things we will be focusing on: Creating lines with drama, using shading and negative spaces to build depth, creating texture with writing instruments, how to create water color effect with acrylics, tips and techniques for working on unique surfaces, along with much, much more!
