In this workshop, we will discover the process of creating unique abstract mixed-media paintings by using watercolor as the foundation. To begin, we will paint a beautiful background using 3-5 watercolors. Once the background is dry, we will utilize various household and kitchen items to create interesting marks. Additionally, we will learn how to draw botanicals and add them to our background, as well as incorporate marks to enhance the final piece. This exercise is perfect for beginners who want to make something without a specific end goal and reduce stress and anxiety.

Join zoom 15 minutes early (1:45pm PT) for an informal meet and greet with the 2:05pm PT so that everyone has plenty of time to join!

ABOUT BINDI

My name is Bindi Desai, and I am a full-time special education teacher in Philadelphia. In addition to my teaching job, I have a passion for watercolor and mixed-media art. My favorite subjects to paint are loose florals and abstract mixed media. I have challenged myself to improve my landscape painting skills, and I am excited to track my progress and create stunning landscapes. I take pride in teaching my students and fellow artists that perfectionism is overrated when learning watercolor and that focusing on the process is more rewarding than obsessing over the final product. In addition to painting and teaching, I enjoy crafting, drawing on my iPad, and listening to audiobooks.
