Are You Ready to Be Inspired?

Kandinsky always believed abstracts were the highest form of art. Abstracts are a profound way to express yourself on canvas. They can also be challenging because there are no rules! By mastering and learning to use the elements of art to create depth and form, the process of creating abstracts will become much easier. Abstracts bring out your true colors, they have a way of revealing what's inside your heart. 

In this exciting workshop, the Milans will help you understand the elements of art and how to translate them in your own unique way. You’ll learn how to use your right brain and find a depth to your art you didn’t know was there. You will be so amazed by what you create!

This workshop includes inspiring lectures and discussions, combined with creating several of your very own paintings using the Milan's signature mixed media techniques. Over the course of 6 days, you’ll create 3 large scale abstract paintings on unstretched canvas. All supplies are included, but if you have some favorite brushes we recommend you bring those with you!
