paint mojo outline – tracy verdugo
26 april – 2 may , 2020
Arrival on Sunday, 5 day Workshop, Depart Saturday
Five inspiring days and six nights of Painting, Mixed Media and Playful exploration with Tracy Verdugo in the gorgeous tropical surrounds of Hacienda Mosaico!
Over 5 days of discovery and play, amongst the lush tropical foliage and vibrant ambience of Hacienda Mosaico, we will explore new techniques, learn to be inspired in every moment and realize that there are no mistakes in the creative process, only opportunities to learn and grow! We will spend our time creating paintings and mixed media pieces spontaneously, balancing an intuitive and considered approach with an open mind and a curious perspective!
In this workshop, we will learn to find our own inner muse, reconnect with our creative selves and find inspiration for our art in unexpected places. During the class Tracy will take you through a series of fun, playful exercises, encouraging you to become an explorer of possibilities. Tracy will share tips and techniques on creating vibrant, expressive, colourful paintings, using acrylics, collage, ink and pastels. She will gently guide you into your own personal creative flow and help you find ways to recognise your own authentic creative voice.
Tracy will generously share her own process and guide you to find the BALANCE between intentional creating and intuitive flow, accessing our memory, story, passion, sketches, poems and interests and bringing those into our work whilst also allowing for flux and the possibility of something entirely unexpected.
Our small group will make art by day and explore the beautiful coastal city of Puerto Vallarta by night, soaking up the abundance of inspiration and creating art together in the roomy and wonderful Hacienda Mosaico workshop space.
For those who have attended my Paint Mojo class before, please know that it is always evolving.
As I grow and expand in my own art practice over 20 years I am always excited to share new discoveries and passions with my students!
This longer format class allows us to dive deeper AND to delve into the gorgeous possibilities that acrylic inks offer us. We will across multiple surfaces, large and small, on watercolour sheets examining both abstraction and more literal aspects of this style of painting.
Imagine yourself waking up slowly and naturally to the sounds and smells of the tropics, stretching your body in anticipation of a day of expansive creativity.
Imagine enjoying a delicious poolside breakfast, laughing and chatting with new friends, perhaps taking a dip in the gorgeous pool before laying out your paints and materials to dedicate the whole morning to learning and painting.
Imagine more delicious food at lunch, more painting, swimming, exploring, communing, all of this on endless repeat for six days with …
NO OTHER DEMANDS.
PURE CREATIVE BLISS!
