Meet Cherie Wilson
Artist, an Instructor, and Encourager.
Abstract painting allows me the time and space to share and respond to my daily observations and life circumstances. Here, an internal dialogue emerges, my soul shifts and something inside of me feels untangled on the canvas. These deep and humbling observations full of twists and turns require vulnerability, honesty, integrity and above all perseverance to trust in the process.
Encouraging others to explore Art and navigate the canvas, I invite students to come home to their own soul with expressive dialogue. I believe the connections made in a learning environment are valuable experiences that feel like stepping stones along life’s journey. I envision a loving Creator placing them there as we journey toward healing and wholeness in our mental, physical and spiritual selves.
I’m so grateful for this labor of love and daily discipline that brings clarity and honors stillness in my life.
I am a wife to Mike and a mother to four lovely and capable ladies and their fine fellas. I’m now a Grandma to the cutest little boy and the cutest little girl on the planet, of course. I am also Mom to our fuzzy and loyal sidekick Elly Mae, who likes to hang out in my home studio when she is not busy riding in the car with me or chasing birds.
Join Cherie Wilson as she guides you into the color wheel and then compositional elements. This course is broken down into engaging fun exercises and completed projects that will build even more confidence in your use of color and your perspective in composition. A perfect start for beginning abstract painters, and for those who are ready to take their painting practice to the next level in Color and Composition awareness.
In this expressive class, Cherie Wilson invites us to untangle our inner dialogue as we explore her abstract process. This class is an opportunity for both personal growth and perspective, not only in our painting, but life itself! Cherie will gently walk you through several warm up's, beautiful color and value, and then on to 2 practice pieces, and finally an abstract Canvas .....with other fun bits along the way! Join us in a place of painterly freedom to grow and learn and make connections that words simply sometimes cannot.
