SP19C19 Sequence Painting

Developed at River Gallery School by Ric Campman, Sequencing is a way for both beginners and more experienced art makers to enter the process of painting at a deep and direct level. Like Zen Tangling, this unique technique takes out some of the traditional impediments to creative energy and allows one to begin work without the burdens of self-doubt.  The emphasis instead, focuses on metaphor, color, light, the horizon, and the physical encounter with the paint. Surprise yourself in this unique creative class, and create a beautiful series you’ll want hanging on your wall!
