Phase 1 Blindfolded Painting blindfolded releases the creator from ambition, merit or competitive performance. It provides an environment to flow into the brush stroke and find your unique expression. This part of the workshop is accompanied by instrumental music.
Phase 2 left handed After removing our blindfolds we will then review the nature of the work completed and it’s discuss qualities. Next using our left hand only we exercise our ambidexterity. This part of the workshop is accompanied by experimental music.
