SOM: Mindful Watercolor

Taught by Amelia Shull

About the Workshop

Relax and engage in the magic of mindful watercolor painting! Participants will learn a variety of different experimental and texture building techniques, then play with the materials and create paintings that don’t require realism. After one mindful warmup painting, folks will be able to experiment and create work that can be meditative in practice, and/or meditative to view! Supplies are provided.
