At CoSM's 7-Day Painting Intensive, artists immerse in an environment that supports their visionary and spiritual development through their artwork. In August, Alex and Allyson led the Class of 2014 in the study and sharing of techniques, processes, and art history. Painting and meditating in the CoSM's studio to uplifting and stimulating music, days were filled alternately with sharing and critique, then painting meditation. The collective body of work resonated with themes of visionary enlightenment. Class Assignment: two paintings, one inspired by a vision, the other a self-portrait. Special thanks to guest artists Randal Roberts and Morgan Mandala for inspiring to this year's Intensive.
