Don't Miss Art & Inspiration with Jill Steenhuis.
Tuesday, April 7 & Wednesday, April 8 (9:30am-5:00pm)
Atlanta History Center
“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” - Vincent Van Gogh
If these words speak to you and wake up a desire to paint, then join Jill for a workshop where the creative process will be taught in such a way that painting becomes the expression of your soul in nature.
The workshop will begin with a talk entitled "Van Gogh Seen through the Artist's Eyes". The focus of the workshop will be on color: how to mix a harmonious palette in oil paint, then put it to use in the landscape or still life and/or interiors if weather does not permit. Experience the true creative process of taking in nature through the senses to activate one's unique inner poetry. Jill’s workshop is more about climbing to a higher level, stretching oneself to experience the link with nature in a deeper way than just copying nature superficially.
