5-Day Workshop at CoSM: An Exploration of Intuition & Technique

  • CoSM: Chapel of Sacred Mirrors 46 Deer Hill Road Wappingers Falls, NY, 12590 United States (map)

Over five days, students will explore their own unique expression, and bring a vision into form on their own canvas.

With balanced emphasis on cultivating creative intuition, as well as developing skilled technique, Autumn Skye offers comprehensive art instruction with numerous technical demonstrations, philosophical anecdotes, and attentive one-on-one support.

Each student will create their own piece, working from a reference and beginning on a blank canvas, dreaming into form their concept and empowering their faith in their intuition and the creative process. Autumn Skye will guide students through compositional mapping strategies, blocking in general forms, sculpting volumes, colour theory, glazing techniques, and final finessing of nuances “glow” and details.

Through the playful and profound process of looking deeply into the “mirror” of the canvas, we are invited to see the world and ourselves in new ways, while weaving depth and personal symbolism into the painting. All painting levels welcome!

Accommodations: Rooms are available for rent in the Grey House, CoSM’s fully renovated Visionary Victorian guest house.
