Watercolor Meditation 1 with Sophie Tivona
Thursday, July 28, 5:00pm - 6:30pm PST
Relax into your watercolor practice through repetitive pattern making and controlled breathing. In this workshop we will use color and simple mark making to explore the benefits of using watercolor as meditation. These exercises are useful as both meditation and a solution to "painter's block" or fear/lack of focus. I hope participants will be inspired to jumpstart their daily practice with these simple meditations.
Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!
Cup of water
Paintbrush (size 2, 4, or 6 round - or all three!)
2-3 pieces of cold press watercolor paper—anything you have will do but if you’re looking for some we recommend Strathmore Vision Pads or Strathmore Ready Cut
Your watercolor paints!
I have followed a meandering path to find my way to a career in illustration and I'm overjoyed to share my love of nature through painting. Watercolor is my muse and I love its unpredictable, unforgiving qualities; it is my daily joy to harness the wildness of the medium and reveal its delicacy and strength.
