The extraordinary painter, Amanda Sage, is at CoSM this week, teaching her 7-Day Painting Intensive. The class is completely full. If you are in the area and would like to see the work in progress in Amanda’s class, you could purchase a meal ticket for lunch or dinner on Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday this week when Day-Visitors are welcome. While at CoSM, be sure to check out Amanda's contribution to The Mushroom Cafe mural, an extraordinary offering that weaves together over a dozen original works by the premier Visionary Vanguard of artists.
About painting, Amanda says, "Through attaining a blissful timeless state of connection with source, one becomes a transmitter, a conduit for creative expression. And once a taste of this has been had we crave to return to that state. Through exploring other perspectives, placing ourselves in new environments and being open to experience, we find our lives enhanced as painting with fresh light illuminates the path.”
Amanda, a master painter, teaches the ‘Mischtechnik' [Mixed Technique], originating from the early renaissance and revived by Austrian painter, Ernst Fuchs, in the 1950s. Fundamentals of the Mischtechnik, adopted by painters working with fantastic and visionary subject matter, offer exquisite transparencies and develop an enhancement in the use of light. Look for Amanda’s workshops in the future and don’t miss her outstanding style and ability to guide artists through demonstrations, presentations, one on one instruction and open studio time that take a non-linear path into the art of painting.
