Mixed Media Abstracts with Acrylics, Graphite Pencils & Oil Pastels: 1 Session Workshop
Mixed media painting by Emily Weil
About the instructor: Emily Weil is a painter who works in watercolor and acrylic and needs to paint as much as she needs to breathe. Her work has been shown at Slate Gallery in Oakland and Jco’s Place Gallery in Los Gatos, and she has exhibited at East Bay Open Studios since 2008, when her painting was featured on the directory cover. She obtained a BFA in graphic design from the California College of Arts and Crafts and operates a freelance design business, Red Eye Design, from her home in Alameda where she lives on a floating home. Emily loves to roam around and paint outside at Alameda point, Mare Island, Treasure Island, and various sites in San Diego, trying to capture the feeling of a particular place. She has a daily painting practice and tries to sketch with watercolor or spend time in her studio in Oakland every day.

Instructor: Emily Weil

Description: Creating abstract art for me is nothing more than grabbing paint and other media and pretending I’m a child with no inhibitions. I abandon all rules and art education and dive in with my instincts and, hopefully, with joy. I trust what’s inside me and in this class I hope to teach how to be freer and more intuitive.
