EMBRACE THE PRACTICE OF DAILY PAINTING


New Year's Day Workshop - Resolution Daily Painting
January 1, 2022 and January 15, 2022 - New Year's Resolution/Daily Painting Project
 Let's start a daily painting practice together on New Year's Day from 11-3EST. We'll gather on Zoom to make our first daily painting of the year together . We'll learn how to simplify the process, create a daily ritual, and how to stick with it. We'll meet up via Zoom two weeks later to learn more painting tricks, circumvent obstacles, and maintain momentum. In between during those two weeks, we'll post and engage frequently (daily or almost daily) on a private Facebook page during, where I'll provide feedback and comments and we'll create accountability for our practice. 
Let's start this year off painting every day!

everyday. Kennedy received a BA from Roger Williams University, and a BFA and MFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Currently she is the Design Editor for the literary publication, Mount Hope and an

Assistant Professor at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA.
