Spontaneous Freestyle Painting – drawing from the heart

relax without outside pressures, expectation or judgment…
painting for the simple joy of doing.Kym Barrett is an
award-winning artist who has been teaching for over
30 years .Her process is an organic one – of discovery,
frequently beginning with spontaneous,intuitive mark-making, collage and colour, allowing the piece to evolve
with the freedom to see what might emerge.Kym will demonstrate the use of charcoal and acrylics on paper, and also encourage each person to be open to the endless possibilities of personal expression.
