Create Your Reality with Painting

with Laurie K.
(0)
$12
Have you heard of the Law of Attraction, The Secret, or the power of thoughts and beliefs? You can use these tools in your paintings too. We will start with setting an intention, painting and writing onto the canvas, and then allow ourselves to paint it into a reality. You do not need to create a picture of anything in particular, and you don't need to be an artist to do this. The painting you create will be infused with the energy of your intention and you can place it anywhere in your home to attract that reality to you! You will need a stretched canvas of any size, a few different soft brushes, a variety of colors in acrylic paint, cup of water, paper towels or rags for cleaning, and pencils or markers.

Abstract Painting uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, non figurative art, nonobjective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.

"Experienced art teacher of 27 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of abstract expressionistic skills. I specialize in acrylic + oil paints, and heavy duty mediums. For color reference, I typically use medium to large flat brushes, metal palettes, varnish and resin. I practice and execute on canvas. I also have the following tools available to use as color reference during lessons: HGTV Magazine, Real Simple Magazine, Dwell Magazine, House & Homes Magazine, Pantone color books, my favorite music, and more.

I've been teaching painting for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media painting and created their own beautiful masterpieces in landscape, abstract, still life and other subjects! Within the first few lessons, you'll start understanding the elements of art such as light, shadows, perspective etc. and as time goes on, you'll be able to paint like a pro! I love working with students of all experience levels and see them leave with their hearts and souls painted into their masterpieces.

Wonderful, patient, good demo of technique. I was nervous that taking a class on calligraphy online wouldn't work well. It does, Monika is very good, I felt like she was right beside me the entire time

It was great! After a bit of tech problems on both sides we had a good session. Monika's first lesson was fun and a good choice for me. I look forward to our next lesson.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

I've been teaching painting for 15 years. I work with my students to customize lessons to their individual needs. Working with specific goals, I can help students achieve whatever level of painting they wish to achieve. I have taught lessons with students of all ages and all levels. I teach the importance of understanding composition, light and shadow. Together, we can work on realism, abstraction, figurative, landscape or anything you desire!
