"Painting from the Soul"

Taking the fear out of abstract art and of making art in general, I lead participants through a series of exercises and tools to expand creative thinking and mark making. Artistic self-discovery happens before you know it. This workshop is good for beginners as well as long time painters who just want to loosen up, get out of a rut, or just break out into something different for a while.

Billie Bourgeois - My work is intuitive abstraction, I perceive from the inside out. To begin painting I make marks with paint on a white space and proceed to dialogue with the piece. I usually have twenty or more pieces going at one time –each informing the next.

Having learned to ‘trust the process’, I love to guide other artists in working ‘from their souls’, working from a place very deep and personal. To do this, I lead individuals through a series of delightful, freeing exercises, introducing them to new tools and approaches to ‘mark making’ on the sometimes intimidating white space. I teach a way to paint and never get stuck, how to have at least 20 paintings going all at the same time, staying in the artistic flow. In my workshops, artistic self-discovery happens before they know it!
