Join artist Robert Masla in the atelier atmosphere of the nurturing and supportive environment of his studio north, in rural Ashfield, MA, for a weekend workshop focusing on an intensive yet fun painting experience. Learn a variety of methods and techniques for experiencing the versatility of Alkyd paint - a fast drying "oil" medium. In Maslas’ encouraging environment you will have a full day to immerse yourself in creative exploration.

Through demos and exercises and “art games” experience (or re-experience) the fun of painting with “no expectations” or judgments, learning to trust (again) in your intuitive voice and tapping your inner artist. For beginner to advanced painters. This workshop will keep you so engaged in the creative process, and absorbed in this nurturing atmosphere, that fears, apprehensions and “inner critiques” are quieted and fall to the background.

Art, and particularly the drawing and painting process, affords us with an amazing opportunity to reconnect with our intuitive creative self and re-experience our original and true nature as pure creative awareness. Join me for some creative exploration with paint and drown out the voices of the inner critique by diving into the waters of passionate creative expression.

- Saturday - 9:00 – 5:00 (1 hour break for lunch).
