i am so excited to have mindy lacefield teaching in the STUDIO next week. she is such an incredible spirit a master of layering colors and textures and pulling her heart right through the canvas. i am so excited to learn from her.
for those of you not able to be at the studio with us creating next week, i thought i would share a bit of her process and talents with you on the blog today.
Take a journey with Mindy as you explore color and texture as you delve into 3 days of raw, primitive painting.
You will channel your inner 7 year old and enjoy the process of painting rather than the outcome. Thinking is not allowed as we glue bits of collage and finger paint with neon bursts. Mindy loves what Julia Cameron says "Art is not thinking something up. Its about getting something down." You will work on several pieces at the same time, allowing us to stretch and not get attached to our work.
Mindy is so thrilled to spend this time with you as you will allow the process to evolve and grow. She will give you writing prompts to explore so that we can add those bits and phrases into our work. Working from the subconscious, the two mingle and marry into one piece that tells your own story.
The First night you will be making our Journals and prepping our wood board. You will be working with painting our own papers to add for collage material through using the gelli plate and mark making/symbol work with a variety of materials. Mindy will demo how to paint a primitive style face and then take them further later with how to use color to mold the face. We will be collaging, lettering, painting and building up layers working on several surfaces at a time (our journal pages and board) to create emotion filled with color and texture.
