Weekend Two (2-day): July 4-5, 2020. Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.
Experience the natural world with freshness. The stillness of short meditations relax the mind and body to better access a ‘contemplative eye’ and foster spontaneous action. Inspired by our natural surroundings we will simplify our painterly gestures in pencil, watercolour crayon or chalk pastel. Quick studies will be expanded in studio projects on Japanese washi papers and/or Arches in mixed media means. Students may continue primarily in watercolour and ink, or acrylics, towards abstract or naturalistic imagery.
Heather Midori Yamada creates paintings, collages, banners with Japanese washi papers and mixed media canvases. Inspired by her own contemplative practises of meditation, hatha yoga, Japanese ikebana and shodo, Heather expresses her heritage while creating in contemporary abstract and naturalistic imagery. This is her second year at the magical place of MISSA!
Course Registration will open for Friends of MISSA on January 21st at 12:00pm (PST), and Registration will open for all on January 28th at 12:00pm (PST)
