What you'll do
Visit the Connecticut countryside, just 90 mins outside of NYC. Board the train from Grand Central, or drive to Wilton, CT. This picturesque area, beautiful in every season, has long been a destination for painters, and is now a home to celebrities, weekenders and NYC commuters. After meet and greet, (and wine..!) I will demo my method for "Fast Abstract Art" painting, sharing tips on composition, color and technique. Learning how to create successful abstract art. Then it's your turn to paint-hands on, (with gentle instruction). No experience needed, just interest and enthusiasm. This is not a "paint and sip " program, we don't copy other art. Each piece is uniquely yours! Next, I will help you crop, edit and mount your work. You will go home with (at least) one unique abstract painting-done in your hand. Ready to frame and hang!
I am a lifelong lover of art and design. Having graduated RISD, and enjoyed a career in fashion, I now spend much of my time painting. My work is sold at local shops and galleries. Recently, I had my "aha" moment - and developed my signature "Fast Abstract Art" painting. Rather than struggle - painting is now fun! I enjoy sharing my method with those interested in learning a new skill, or just making art among friends- in a peaceful and beautiful setting.
Wine, soft beverages, Local cheeses, snacks.

Where you'll be
My home sits on 2 acres in the beautiful north country of Wilton, a setting that will surely inspire you. In the warm months, we will be painting in the garden, under the flowering pergola, "plein air" style. In cooler months or inclement weather, we will paint inside still using nature as inspiration.
