Expressions in Paint Workshop by Claire DesJardins

Last weekend I took Claire Desjardin’s Expressions in Paint workshop at the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vermont. Claire has been on my blog before (here and here), and you can check out her work also on her website and her Instagram. The first one below is one of my favorites by her that she had in an introductory slide show of her work that she showed us at the beginning of the class.

In the photos below you can see the class as it progressed with demos, student work, and a critique at the end. The last five paintings shown in this post are mine that I did in the class. You can also see three of them more close up in yesterday’s post. Comments about my paintings during the critique: “Lots of energy!”

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    I loved this workshop view over your shoulder. I am going to share it with my granddaughter and her school art teacher she is a student ( senior) at Principia Upper school. Beautiful fun work.
