tWO Inspiring Days of Painting, Mixed Media and Play T with Tracy Verdugo and Hollyeva in Wollongong, Sydney Australia October 8th and 9th, 2011 Austinmere beach Scout Hall Moore St Ausintmere

"To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong" Joseph Chilton Pearce Over two days of discovery and play, we will explore new and non threatening ways to make Art, learn to be inspired in every moment and realise that there are no mistakes in the creative process, only opportunities to learn and grow! We will spend the weekend creating paintings and mixed media pieces spontaneously and intuitively, with no expectations, a wholehearted approach and an open mind! In this two-day workshop, we will start each day with simple stretc hing and breathing exercises, moving out of our busy minds and into our hearts. With a focus on gratitude, letting go of our inner critic and playful exploration, Hollyeva and Trac y will dance you through a series of fun projects to the beat of some great music, encouraging you to be bold and to listen to your heart. Tracy will share tips and techniques on creating vibrant, expressive, colourful paintings, using acrylics, ink and pastels. She will gently guide you into your own person al creative flow and teach you her methods of making awesome textural patterns with no More Gaps, handmade stamps from pizza bases and fabric to add subtle patterning to your work. You can expect to take home two beautiful canvases from the weekend! Hollys focus will be on funky and hip mixed media pieces; bring your sewing machine if you have one and please dont be terrified even if youve never sewn..all aspects of this workshop are suitable for all levels! Holly is an expert on upcycling and recycling, creating beauty out of discarded items and putting them together with a whole lot of Kapow! Both artists will help you jump bravely into the unknown moving back and forth between intuition and making conscious decisions.be prepared to be an expert multitasker at the end of this weekend! At the end of the weekend you can expect to take home a large mixed media Gratitude painting, a gorgeous personal concertina art book, a creative mixed media wrist cuff, an upcycled fabric necklace and an embellished collage wall hanger ( maybe more if youre really prolific!!)

My paintings are often created intuitively and I am often surprised at the finished piece. I am inspired by our travels in Mexico and the colours, exuberance of Spirit and magical experienc es I have shared with m y family t here. I love text ure and the sensuality, rhythm and pattern of fabrics and ofte n incorporate these mixed media elements into my work. I like to believe that we are all part of an intricate and breathtaking tapestry. Our only c hoic e each m om ent is whet her t o be a part of t he c reat ing or a part of t he unravelling.
