Artist Masterclass Series with Leslie Montana
Unpacking the Process - Cultivating Sustainable Practices.
In this masterclass series, we'll take an in-depth look at the different stages of creating a painting in watercolor. Starting with our initial concept, we'll explore why we choose what we do and how to make the best decisions from the start to achieve our goals with ease.
From concept to sketch, drawing, under-drawing, and the proper use and understanding of materials, a great deal of consideration goes into this process. To achieve physical mastery, acquiring technical skills is a must. Good guidance can help us excel with greater efficacy and confidence.
Another part of the journey speaks to the magic of art. The energetic, unseen aspects that inspire us to create in the first place are critical components of our work. And while defining those elements in linear terms is challenging and maybe even irrational, it's easy to grasp from the flow state.
Art has the potential to take us beyond the mundane do-this-to-get-that model of reality. So the frustration you may feel from time to time is often a redirect into this unexplored sector of your universe. The universe of you.
It's all about the art of making art. And in my version of making art as a life practice, we start from a holistic orientation that leads us forward as we cultivate sustainable practices that serve us, our creations, and our lives overall.
Have you noticed the paradigm shift taking place inside you? It demands authentic creativity as well as constant improvement not only of technical skills but how we use them. When we align with our true creative nature we gain energy and can move through challenges with greater ease. We see more, and we love our craft more than we ever have before.
After you sign up, you'll receive a welcome email from me. And soon after that, an email with jpgs and information to prepare you for class. You’ll also receive a link to a private masterclass community page that will be updated with photos, videos, and writings that are of specific relevance. This adds an extra dimension of support and keeps us connected throughout the time we work together.
In this lecture and demo format, you can watch and relax during live classes, or paint along. You can use the files I send you to prepare ahead of time if you like. Most people just relax and take in the experience the first time around, which is recommended. Replays will be available on the masterclass community page. Follow along with the video and paint afterward as many times as you like.
"As a professional painter and fine artist, I see Leslie Montana's instruction not as a course of education but as a soul retreat. Her soft yet powerful approach, while she makes the brush connected to the divine in nature, stirs the soul and pierces the heart. Her sessions are like a balm where she invites you into her knowledge and experience. Her paintings are alive and you feel and see them dance. I recommend Leslie's courses and her instruction, they are pure gold and beauty combined." Grace Z of New London CT
