We added a second week, see dates below.
"Go With the Flow"
Exploring Abstraction in Watercolor
with Tammy Dinius
March 26, 27, 28, 2024
Held at her studio in Washougal
Tamara Dinius, a self-proclaimed "Passionista", is inspired by the world around her. She is an award-winning artist who has worked on two international design teams and has sold her art internationally. She has over forty years of experience in the art market and enjoys sharing her knowledge with other artists. Tamara's art can be found throughout the Pacific Northwest in wineries and gift stores.
Her art classes continue to inspire others to find their creative voice. Whether Tamara is teaching a class for three, or thirty-three, she works with each student individually to unleash their creative spirit.
"I create art for the pure enjoyment of it and to give my emotions an outlet. My belief that it can lead to personal growth and healing is the reason that I also enjoy teaching art. There is something magical that happens when my paint-filled fingers float over the textured canvas and deposit bits of color into the tiny crevices. I love the way watercolors, acrylic paints and alcohol drops collide with one another and take on an entirely new dimension. The connection that our hands have with our minds is fascinating. Depending on my mood, without even being conscious of it, I will grab colors that reflect the emotions of the day. I quite literally paint away my bad mood."
