“Moods, Rhythms and Wild Expressiveness! A NEW Abstract Art Workshop”
Building trust in our choices, creating quiet and bold conversations, by expressing big gestures, inner whispers and letting the subtleties of the details matter. We will learn about primary and secondary conversations in what draws the attention and what holds the attention. We will explore neutral and achromatic palettes that can soothe or create a commotion. Play, learn and expand your ways of expressing yourself in Abstract Art. Exercises to release the mind and trust our own uniqueness.
“Express Your Wild Creativity: Cut Loose, get Wild!”
Santa Fe Abstract Art Workshop
September 15-17, 2017
Suzanne Jacquot and Julie Schumer
Suzanne and Julie have a full, fun-packed learning and exploratory weekend planned so that you can have breakthroughs in your art, learn new techniques to enhance your paintings. There will be loads of information and demos but also lots of times to explore and paint on your own. This is a chance to get free, play, delve, and create in a small community of like-minded artists.
The picturesque town of Santa Fe is extra special in the Fall and temperatures should be really pleasant for creating and sight-seeing. We look forward to seeing you there!

“Where the Pavement Ends” was a valuable artistic experience that I would highly recommend. The painting and drawing exercises designed by the instructor are created to benefit artists of all levels.
“The workshop was a life changing event for my husband and I, who were first time painters. After a few guided exercises, we quickly developed our own styles and to truly have a feeling for painting. James and Julie’s mentoring approach provided a safe and stress-free environment that allowed us to feel comfortable opening up and letting loose our creative side. We especially enjoyed painting together on the same piece. It was a unique challenge that allowed us to learn how to combine our different styles in a cohesive and collaborative manner.”
“Where the Pavement Ends” was an experience that I believe has taken my approach to painting to a new level. This experience is comparable
to a spiritual break through for me in the sense that once a realization or understanding happens, it can never be un-learned. I have been liberated from some old habitual boring patterns that no longer serve me and this workshop experience has added new approaches and spaciousness to my process. Thank you James!”
