Intro to Abstract Painting Workshop

Join us for an "intro to abstract painting" class with Meredith C. Bullock, an abstract and process-based painter in Nashville, TN. This class is open to all levels of interest from beginning to expertise. All supplies will be provided for students to participate including paint, brushes, paper, canvas, and more. Each student will take home several pieces of art they created on paper and canvas plus a brush and a color mixing guide.

At a young age, art became a vehicle of self expression and communication in moments of solitude, trauma, inspiration and happiness. As an adult Meredith explored several avenues of income with art like calligraphy, design and branding until finally she was able to leave them all behind to pursue her dream of being a full-time painter.

For Meredith, painting is a therapeutic release, an expression of emotions, and a game of tug and war with her fears and limitations. She focuses primarily on the process of painting and telling stories through shapes, gestures, mark-making and movement.

Meredith has been an Etsy Featured Seller and featured on the 100 Day Project, Chairish, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Once Wed and published in Mud Season Review. She has taught dozens of creative workshops, spoken at conferences and events, founded a woman's creative retreat and occasionally paints live at music events.
