With more than a dozen years of classroom experience, Creative Wings Studio's Debbie Purdy guides amateur and accomplished artists on their journey through Michele Cassou’s Point Zero Painting Process. Purdy’s classes foster creativity through meditative awareness, release of inhibitions, and psychic paintbrushes. Single sessions emphasize moment-to-moment experiences over end results, encouraging full creative expression and a sense of paint-covered adventure while banishing criticism. Artists looking to plumb the deeper depths of their creative wells can opt for Creative Wings Studio's weekend workshop. Over the course of a 19-hour, three-day July retreat, painters exercise inspiration by honing processes, creating heartfelt works, and lifting weights made from lead-filled paint cans.
Purdy’s classes and workshops are open to virtuosos of all experience levels and include up to 20 participants. Classes and workshop sessions unfold at the Source, an open space with white paper covering the walls and necessary supplies occupying the center, letting artists unleash creative potential or practice new graffiti tags.
