Learn with Julie Schumer

“Express Your Wild Creativity: Cut Loose, get Wild!”

3 Day Abstract Art Intensive Workshops
Workshop Leaders: Suzanne Jacquot and Julie Schumer

Get wild with us! Bring your courage, curiosity, and love of creating for this 3 day intensive abstract acrylic workshop.  Explore, delve, learn to trust yourself and get wildly creative.  You will be guided through a series of structured loosening up exercises, incorporating both painting and drawing, using acrylic paint and a variety of drawing tools in the creation of non-objective paintings.  You will gain courage, build trust in your artistic choices, grow your skills of design, explore your own inner painting language and nurture your creative spirit.  There will be plenty of free painting time as well.  Come prepared to rediscover the art of play and tap into your inner wildness.  All levels welcome.

The Santa Fe workshop will include a walking tour on Friday afternoon to see Abstract Art in selected galleries, will emphasize the power of color, and is an all new workshop for those who participated in our September, 2017 3 day intensive.

“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.
-Amy Longcope

“The workshop was a life changing event for my husband and me, who were first time painters. After a few guided exercises, we quickly developed our own styles and gained 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.”
-Violeta Hammond

“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!”
