Experiments in Spontaneity: An Abstract Workshop with Ellen McKay

Four Tuesdays, 11 AM - 2 PM 

February 19 & 26 and March 5 & 12, 2019

Emerge Gallery, #Saugerties, NY

In these classes we explore ways to start a painting and develop it through various techniques which establish a dialogue with the Unconscious—ground of spontaneity, realm of authentic expression. With pleasure as our guide, we draw upon emotion, sense memory, observation. We leave intellect and preconceived ideas aside, we break old habits and gain new ground. This workshop is perfect for beginners as well as for seasoned artists who wish to break new ground in their work.


"Take this class if you want to smile to yourself while you work, if you want to be inspired to be creative without any preconceived notions of what you'll create, if you need to let go of rigid standards you've set for yourself, if you want to engage in creative play for the first time, or to refresh your approach and thinking in your artistic practice." — Natalie Boburka, 2018
