In this inspirational weekend workshop we will start with exercises that stimulate your creativity. You will be gently led to experience the freedom of using fresh intuitive insight and personal imagery to direct your art, conquer the daunting mystery and experience the profound excitement of painting BIG!

Demonstrations, technical instruction, and individual assistance provided. Open to curious novices and professionals alike who want to loosen up a little more and feel the incredible joy of LARGE SCALE painting!


CYNTHIA SCHILDHAUER is a successful painter living in Chico, CA, educated at the MFA School in Boston and Chico State University. Using the transparency and the adhesive qualities of natural beeswax, combined with many other materials, including objects, words, paints, and carvings, Cynthia’s paintings have been described as “sublime... whimsical… tender... quirky… disturbing... psychological… surprising... full of heart.” Her work has been featured in private and museum and corporate collections throughout the US, including the 911 Museum in New York, and parts of Europe. She teaches drawing and painting at various locations, including Butte College and the Mendocino Art Center.
