Color Meditations / Saturday, October 7



Saturday, October 7
1 PM – 4 PM
LOCATION: Art Studio at Willowtail Springs Nature Preserve and Education Center / 10451 Rd 39, Mancos

This acrylic painting workshop for adults is designed to guide you into the next realm of painting. These three hours of instruction, guidance, painting, and personal attention will allow the pathway for your creativity to open up and breathe. We’ll explore a combination of guided meditations and color studies, along with exercises of intention, relaxed focus, and finding the “zone” of intuitive painting. This will allow you to connect with your inner creative spirit and wisdom. The goal is for you to find the freedom to allow your inner creative essence to emerge.

What you will learn:

  • Students will learn how to find a level of relaxed focus as they draw on their intuition and inspiration.
  • They’ll learn how to tap into and feel where the inspiration and creative spirit are in the body.
  • They will learn color & brush techniques to help them create the atmosphere they desire.

Adult class – 18+ with some painting experience.

About The Instructor:

Patrice DeLorenzo, a native of Boston residing in Durango, Colorado is a passionate lifelong painter who holds a BFA and MFA in Drawing & Painting. Her passion is also her livelihood. She teaches private and group classes & workshops as well as teaches at San Juan College in Farmington, NM – most semesters since the Fall of 2020. In early 2023 she completed a commission of 6 large custom paintings for a new home nestled in the Aspens near Durango Mountain Resort in Colorado. This project began in 2022 when she also completed a portrait for a book cover and a memorial portrait painting of 2 dogs.

DeLorenzo’s paintings reflect her experiences and love for nature, most generally in the form of landscapes and florals. The essence of her paintings reflects the connection between creative spirit and spirituality. The depth of feeling, years of experience, and memories encompassed are beautiful, touching, and moving. Her work has sold in galleries from Boston, to the Midwest, to Durango, Colorado.

Patrice’s expressive brushwork and exquisite use of color create poignant, narrative, and moving images. They reconnect us to the sensitive and dynamic beauty of the natural world and our own beloved memories and feelings.

Learn from her how to tap more deeply into your creative spirit and how you can communicate your creative gift through painting. Patrice’s Studio on Main Ave in Durango offers new courses and classes.
