If you’ve ever had the desire to just throw down paint without having a plan, this workshop is for you. We will paint spontaneously and without reservations. The result will be a visual abstraction that is an expression of your inner creative voice.
The process will begin with laying out color and then flow into guttural mark-making. Expect to create multiple layers and be prepared to completely paint over anything you feel attached to. Multi-media is absolutely an option if you choose. All levels are welcome.
A list of recommended materials will be provided upon registration.

About the instructor:
Shira Romano was born in Manhattan, New York. Her love for art began when she was 7 years old and her Uncle Jack would wake up at the crack of dawn to create art. She would always join him and he always had a project for her to work on. Mostly, though, she learned to love art, from his love of art.
Shira graduated from Parson’s School of Design in NYC with a degree in Communication Design, but her secret love was painting. After raising 3 children, Shira attended classes at the Art Students League in NYC with a work-study scholarship. After a year of painting, Shira was a class monitor to MaryBeth McKenzie and was also a monitor for Ms. McKenzie’s workshop in Florence, Italy at the SACI School. Shira also won scholarships to study at the National Academy School of Fine Arts.Shira continues to paint at her studio in Long Island.
