nner Radiant Child with Mindy Lacefield

2-day workshop
Aug 19th & 20th  10-5 each day (bring a lunch)
$250 class fee + $10 kit fee 

Join me as we revisit our 7 year old selves and the uninhibited play of creating! We will learn to let go and have fun as we get messy with color and mark making. We will paint intuitively and embrace the mistakes and happy accidents as they happen. Once those mistakes are brought forth we can celebrate and use them as a catalyst for direction. The work begins to speak to us. We react. We respond with quick movements and subtle mark making. We are here to create from a place of not worrying about the outcome. We aren’t bodies creating “something”. We are souls creating what’s inside, that which is wanting so desperately to get out. There is no better medicine and healing than finding yourself in a mark….in a combination of color….in a shape. We will explore and pull out that which you may not have known was inside!

We will play and get our hands messy in paint. My instruction is very intuitive with short break-out demos so that you can have plenty of time to play. I’ll show you specifics like how I paint faces and a couple different ways that you can pose your girl whether she be sitting on a cupcake or standing in a field of poppies.
