Hi Everyone,
Is 2015 the year you start making art again? Does painting and making art sound fun to you? If so, come play and explore your creative side at a workshop in my studio. 

Introductory Mixed Media Workshop
This fun, concentrated workshop will have you exploring and practicing ideas and techniques used in creating mixed media abstract art. I will be sharing methods to approach composition, color and texture, while discussing intuition, and letting go. All paint and materials are provided. You may bring any water-soluble paints you like to work with, but not needed.
All skill levels welcomed-No artistic experience necessary. All that is needed is a positive attitude and a willingness to play. 
Hours: 1 – 4:30 pm 
Cost for this workshop – 75.00 (15% discount for signing up for two or more workshops in advance.) 

All Day Saturday Mixed Media Workshop
In this fun, exploratory workshop you’ll have all day to express your creativity as I share my approach to creating mixed media abstract art. All paint and materials are provided. You may bring any water-soluble paints you like to work with, but not needed.
This workshop has an option to bring something you are working on.
Note: If you want to bring large work, you’ll need to let me know the size to make sure there is enough room in the studio. Also if you want to work vertical, you will need to bring your own easel, and possibly larger brushes.
All skill levels welcomed-No artistic experience necessary. All that is needed is a positive attitude and a willingness to play. 
Hours: 10 – 5 pm 
Light lunch provided with non-vegan and vegan options.

All paint and materials are provided. You may bring any magazine/print images or water-soluble paints you like to work with, but not needed.

“Chris Henry’s workshops have been a major leaping point for me as an artist. After not having painted for 30 years it was the perfect opportunity to get reacquainted with the whole process. Chris is hugely generous with his students in terms of sharing his techniques and years of experimentation with a variety of materials. The classes are relaxed yet highly informative and productive. Chris creates a space where every participant gets what they need regardless of their level of experience.”

“First of all, I just want to thank you again for the workshop. I got a lot out of it! The very next day, I went to the studio to work on something that’s been on my easel for over 9 months, and, with trepidation in my heart and hands, laid down an abstract background of shapes, colors, darks and lights etc just like you showed us. Oh my God, was I ever nervous! But it turned out great and just started making itself from there. Cool!”
