The Beautiful Mess Painting Clinic
Revitalize an Unfinished Artwork
Julie Bernstein Engelmann
Saturday, March 13, 2021, 10am-4pm
Abstract and contemporary paintings can get stuck mid-process at a frustrating stage we call the “beautiful mess.” Don’t give up on them!
In this one-day online painting clinic, you’ll be amazed to discover that your unfinished piece is most likely only a few well-placed brushstrokes away from being fabulous. Starting with what you love in your piece, Julie will train your eye to see how to enhance the depth and flow, which is key. She will demonstrate relevant critique points to illuminate what is really happening in your painting so you can bring it home to fulfilled completion.
You’ll focus on 1-2 pieces in any medium; acrylic is ideal. Attendance is limited to eight participants for plenty of one-on-one attention, plus group discussion, demonstration, and working time. Using an online class forum, you’ll post photos before and during the clinic, and will be able to receive follow-up feedback for two weeks afterward.
This workshop will take place online using ZOOM.
