Lina Arcila, founder of LinaMar Art
LinaMar is an emerging abstract artist from Colombia, a place of colour and brightness that profoundly influenced her art and style. She was intuitively inspired to make connections between her own life experiences with colours and their meaning and influence.
Painting has always been LinaMar’s way of communicating her feelings and taking in life with its beauty and challenges. Her creative goal is to inspire those who view her artworks to reconnect with themselves and enjoy each colour. Her playful use of different textures and shapes invites the viewer to focus on mindfully experiencing the paintings.
This workshop is a perfect space to be creative and let go, listen to your emotions through an abstract creation guided by the artist at all times, also you'll learn about brushes, paints, mediums, how to paint freely, and how to take care of your tools. Please note this workshop is for adults of all ages.
📅 Saturday, 4th September and
📅 18th September from
