Our 4th instructor to join us at this years create.explore.discover art retreat is Mati McDonough. Mati is returning for a 3rd year this year and is sharing an encore session of our retreats most signed up for course: Daring Adventures in Paint. Mati will again be teaching 3 separate session that can be taken individually or as a series. Everyone that takes this course with Mati comes away with incredible projects and an excitement about art that hopefully fuels their souls long after our weekend together has ended.
A little more information about Mati:
“Mati Rose McDonough is an Oakland, CA -based artist, illustrator and author of “Daring Adventures in Paint”. Mati decided to go back to art school at almost 30 and pursue illustration wholeheartedly. Since then, Mati has painted approximately 852 paintings and is still excited and terrified every time she sees a blank canvas. She has had dozens of art shows, taught painting classes internationally and had her art and illustrations used for tees for Patagonia, mystery gameboards, giant billboards for Pier 1, as well as greeting cards, children’s books, her painting book and her very own home decor line. Through her workshops, book, and popular online course, she spreads a warm message of creative courage: it’s never too late to show the world your magic. Discover more at www.matirose.com.
Mati is teaching Daring Adventures in Paint at this year’s retreat.
Daring Adventures In Paint will be a fun exploration of paint and collage! We’ll explore easy ways to layer paint, play with lush color, make daring choices and learn to trust your own voice in the process. Drawing from my painting book by the same title, we will experiment with building beautiful backgrounds, adding collage and transferring our sketches. You can take 1 or 2 classes or all 3. No experience with painting is necessary just the ability to explore and be curious!”
