Early Registration Open | Everyone is an Artist with Jan McCarthy

Often we don’t approach our creating with an open and playful heart. By the time we get into our creative space there may be a million words, frustrations, worry or even hopes for our limited time in this sacred space. I love when an artist takes the hands of other creatives and encourages the kind of creativity that we all long for…open and free. No rules or expectations. A kindness over ourselves and the work that is precious within us. Play! That alone is worthy of you showing up. Join me in welcoming Jan McCarthy to our creative network and her first online course!

Early Registration is open for Everyone is an Artist with Jan McCarthy. Registration is open for $42 and will go to the full price of $62 on October 5th at 10 pm MST. The course will go live on November 6th. The course is 3.5 hours of content. Come and read all about it.

 

 

Join Jan McCarthy as she walks you through how to discover your artistic voice and tell a story through abstract art making.

Every painting tells a story but learning how to communicate the story you want to tell through art can be intimidating, especially when you are working in abstract. Jan guides you through the process with ease, introducing you to a variety of materials that will leave you confident and sure in your art making and story telling.

Whatever your skillset, Jan believes everyone is an artist and she helps you find confidence and discover your artistic voice. Using mixed media, including collage, mark making, and creative exercises with warm-ups and various prompts, you will develop a story line and interpret your findings onto canvas.

This methodology of painting is a modern approach to storytelling and is an interesting way to discover more about yourself and the stories we tell. While every painting tells a story, the gem of this kind of painting is that while this painting may reflect your story, it can be interpreted in many different ways in the eyes of the observer. This is the true magic in art.

Art is always a journey into self-discovery, increased observation skills and creative pursuits. My hope is that after this class you will feel confident to move forward using a variety of mediums and materials, but more importantly, confidence in telling a story through art with secret meanings and many interpretations.

While all techniques, materials and art practices I teach are applicable to any size painting, she will be using a 16” x 20” canvas to demonstrate this art form.
