This 2-day workshop in Wilmington, NC is the intensive version (with all the info and exercises) of the month long class Mónica Linares teaches at her studio. So come ready to learn and work hard…while having fun!
Why this workshop? If you are here, you probably know!
Mónica created this class because she struggled with finding time to paint, to make it a priority. And she well knew that the more you paint the better you get. It is very easy to say! She knew the theory, but how to put it into practice when you have so much to do every day?
In 2018 she finally did it! She painted most days (and still do!). How did she do it?
I did some serious research on habit formation and also a fantastic opportunity showed up. I’ll share all I learned with you during the time we spend together. I’ll guide you to find your happy habit of painting, yes yours! We are all different and have different needs, routines and activities, but we all can create a habit if we really want to, have the right tools and the right motivation. This class will give you all that, you just have to bring the “really wanting to” part 😉
THIS WORKSHOP WILL OFFER YOU:
- The 4 pillars needed to form the habit of daily (or most days) painting.
- The right motivation, practical ideas and how some master painters do it.
- Painting exercises that’ll help you create the habit of showing up at your easel.
- A tribe of like minded people with the common goal of creating this happy
Born and raised in Venezuela, Mónica Linares was always surrounded by paint and brushes thanks to an artist father. With a background in advertising she was permanently in contact with design, color and style, but it was not until 1999 when she formally started her formation as a painter at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Her painting formation never stops as she continues learning and being inspired by wonderful artists. Mónica has a graphic style and many have called her a colorist. She aims for simplicity, interesting design and strong brushwork.
She lives with her husband and her kids in Apex, NC.
