Mixed Media Techniques Fit for a Queen

Saturday's Mixed Media Painting Discovery Workshop hosted by The Queen's Ink in Savage Mill, Maryland, proved to be yet another fabulous journey into self-expression and TRUST! Sharon set the tone initially by having everyone take a few mediative moments to let go of all their hassles and worries. She asked everyone to create the mindset that this class would be about trusting their intuition. Students were put to the test immediately as they quickly and decisively selected their paint palette consisting of three colors. It was apparent from the start that this group of women were willing to put their fears and self-doubt (about painting) aside and let their inner wisdom shine through. As each one of the 12 steps was revealed, the paintings began to take on a life of their own reflecting personal affirmations and colorful expression. Although this class was designed for artists with little or no painting experience, it was surely a testament that we all have the creative force within us that is just waiting to be released. And release it - they did! Everyone left with a "ready to hang" canvas while knowing confidently in their hearts that we are all "Queen of the Arts".
