WHAT TO BRING: a photo to work from and…keep reading, you’ll find a suggested supplies list below. We got easels and side tables!
STUDENTS: max. 10, minimum 6
YOGA BEFORE PAINTING: Make this a mini spa morning; practice yoga before joining us for 6×6. Information about Yoga to Awaken your Inner Artist HERE
We created 6×6 after a wonderful group of artists working on becoming daily painters (from our Happy Habit class) requested a way to stay in touch, motivated, in painting shape, and inside a daily painters (or most day painters) tribe! We artists know how lonely the life of an artist can be. In our studios (and our heads!) all the time! Thinking, solving, seeing, creating, and knowing how much we need connection with other thinkers and creators to feel supported (and understood!). We need to build a community of like minded people!
Come to 6×6 to connect with your peers and stay for up to 2 hours of painting! Artist Mónica Linares will guide you to finish at least 2 paintings during each 6×6 session. Feel free to work on any other painting project if you prefer. We suggest painting on 6×6″ panels as most daily painters do! It is a format that allows daily painters to start and finish a painting in one day.
This will also be a place to share information about opportunities for painters, exhibitions, lectures and anything that can keep us motivated to paint daily.
All levels are welcomed! Basic knowledge of painting is recommended.
Bring your own supplies. READ BELOW SUGGESTED SUPPLIES TO BRING.
Acrylics and oils are welcome (no solvents or mediums allowed, use walnut oil if needed 😉 Exercise will be explained in acrylics.
Mónica Linares, with a background in advertising, has been officially painting since 1999. She has learned from many wonderful teachers like Cathy Martin, Carol Marine, Patty Mollica, Lisa Daria, Maggie Siner, Colley Whisson, David Skinner and Carlos San Millán, among many other incredible people. She paints with acrylics, and loves to paint flowers, interiors, or landscapes with bright colors and a graphic style, simplifying what she sees as much as she can, and leaving just what’s important. Her paintings can be found online and at the North Carolina Museum of Art Store. She also runs Painting Miles and created the Happy Habit class.
