Carole Barnes (First Session – Intermediate to Advanced)
This is an open workshop with your own coach designed to make your work stronger and more personal. This popular class encourages artists to explore design, color and their own unique style and voice in realism or abstraction. Each artist has a detailed private critique with a focus on strengths and expanding boundaries. Her “Carole talks” focus on how to break through blocks, how to resolve a painting, know when it is finished and ways to realize your own potential. Lots of painting time is provided to work in acrylic watercolor or collage. Some painting experience is desirable but the class is about creativity, content and what You have to say and Your best way to say it. Carole is an experienced enthusiastic teacher who has taught at Springmaid Beach Resort for many years.
