Instructor: Meridith Ridl, Ages 13 and up, $150

Working with acrylic, watercolor, ink, and collage, this experimental painting workshop will explore surface, texture, color, and pattern (both observed and invented) in order to develop non-representational work. Come improvise, experiment, abstract, and play. Looking for inspiration in the natural landscapes, structures, and actions around us...woods! weathered walls! paint spills! coffee stains!...artists (of any level!) will be encouraged to wallow in the wonder of the intricacies or expansiveness of mark and design.
