By popular demand the Artform course Painting Outside the Box is back. It is a 3 day painting course led by the renowned expressionist painter Michael Mulcahy.
During the course, you will experience the pure joy of colour and the creative freedom of expressionism. This course is sure to stimulate your confidence and bring out your unique individual talent, freed from concern about the end result.
Most people who say they cannot paint think in terms of painting realistically. Painting outside the box shows another way by opening your mind and expanding the practice of art beyond a narrow interpretation based on realistic representation as well as by
breaking out of a single technique and medium. In this course, Michael will encourage the use of mixed media including charcoal, oils, acrylics, oil pastels.
Michael’s paintings reflect a strong primordial presence from the experience of an avid traveler, who has lived with many indigenous tribes. Being an expressionist artist, there is little realism in Mulcahy’s work. And yet, his clarity of colour and energetic brushwork holds a unique energy and power to convey mood. With this approach, painting becomes a window to the viewer’s imagination where each painting can hold a different meaning for each individual. In short, Michael paints outside of the box every day. It is this special vision of reality which Michael invites you to share during this course.
