    Painting can be an amazing pursuit, but can also be quite lonely.  CAC now offers FREE Open Studio Space for its members.  Imagine having three hours on Friday mornings to devote to your art - to paint/draw in the company of other artists in a casual, supportive setting.  Music, coffee, and treats too!  A safe place to share ideas, get suggestions for problem paintings, and share knowledge and techniques with others to enhance your work. Each session ends with a 45-minute group critique if you choose to participate.  This group has been meeting informally for the past year, and is now expanding to CAC members.  Feel free to drop in, or come on a regular basis.  Just be sure to RSVP 24 hours in advance to reserve your art table.  Limited to water media, pastels, colored pencils, charcoals, etc. (no oils due to ventilation.)  Max of 10 adults.  Some experience with your media is required, but all levels are invited.  This is not a class, and there is no instructor.  It is open studio time.  Please write to info@corralesartscenter with any questions you have about joining the group.  

    Please RSVP each and every Friday that you wish to attend. Clicking the RSVP link will set up an email for you addressed to Tina Stallard.  Please type in the Subject line "RSVP for Open Studio."  If you are new to the group please type in your name and phone number in the body of the email.   

    A 24-hour notice is required.

    An artist's PRACTICAL HANDS-ON WORKSHOP to explore artist's intuition in our direct experience and to provoke our inherent nature of creativity as an irresistible sense of ‘being’ itself. Intermediate and advanced skill levels. Age 18 and up or by permission. Here we can know and trust those moments when conditioning and habit loses it's grip as the Ah-Ha! surprises us. Our muse will be artists who have worked in the sub-sets of Abstract Expressionism known as "Painterly Abstraction, Lyrical Abstraction, Art Informel, and Tachisme”. Each one of us can directly experience the vast space where beauty abides. Several alternative methods, approaches, resources and materials will be demonstrated and provided. This workshop is limited to mixed media and water media - ie: all except oil based media. Each participant provides basic familiar materials – paints, papers, brushes etc. The workshop supplies a number of sheets of archival papers to work on and a 16x20 prepared hardboard panel for each participant's experimentation as well as several other experimental materials, supplies and ideas well beyond the basics.
