May 6, 13, and 20 Classes:


Come join Jenny Jacobs for an introduction to "Passion Painting"...painting where the goal is free expression, with the emphasis on the the creative process rather than on technique or expertise. The challenge is in expressing yourself, not in learning techniques or following a leader. The beauty in this kind of painting is that it can awaken a wild burst of passion that will not go back to sleep.


We will use only the simple tools of

1) Brushes(bring your own, water friendly assortment)

2) Paper(sheets to be provided to participants....$ 2 sheet)

3) Paint(bring your own....tempera, acrylics, or watercolor)


In this workshop, everyone is a beginner, but passion painting requires monk-like silence and focus. Leave your inner critic at home and come learn to let go in the passion of painting. Call Jenny Jacobs at 615-691-2636 or email if you have any questions.
