Did you know “Kamikaze” is a Japanese word meaning “divine wind”?
Rest assured we won’t be participating in the more popular definition: A Japanese aircraft loaded with explosives and making a deliberate suicidal crash on an enemy target.
But our inner critic might get a little insulted as we ignore it in our quest to deliberately let go into the creative gales encountered as we quickly discover  simple, new victories in art expression and mindfulness.
Kamikaze Goes to Portland:
Free-Range Art Generation with Jill Badonsky:
Liberate Your Creative Voice with Wild Abandon and Portland Sunshine
 July 27-28, 2019

Brought to you by:
Sellwood Carriage House
Portland, Oregon
Artisan Workshop
create – nurture - kinship
One Space OPEN
In this fun two-day workshop, you will discover how sketching and watercolor painting can be easier, relaxing, and addictive.
Jill will teach you methods of drawing and painting using wild abandon techniques that inspire new directions and define your artistic voice (even if you think you can’t draw a stick-figure). We will relax on location in the charming Portland Sellwood neighborhood while rendering simple paintings with newly discovered tools and tricks.
The perfectionistic tendencies, hesitancy, and/or immobilizing self-judgment that stop many people from accessing deeper levels of creativity or even feel free to “begin” will be terribly confused and ask to be excused from this workshop.
How to be liberated from what stops you from letting loose into your art. 
Finding your voice exercises- We all already have an artistic voice. You will get better acquainted with yours and take it to the next level.
How to render outside scenes with abbreviated whimsy and added fancy.  We will be sitting by homes from the turn of last century and some great city and river scenes in walking distance.  If you've never done this, this is a good workshop to venture into this mindful experience of sitting outside and immersing yourself in art.
July 27-28, 2019
Fees: $325, $100 deposit secures your registration
