April Lacheur
Professional Artist

April works as a professional artist creating bold and unique works inspired by west coast nature using acrylic paint on canvas and wood. April is also a Registered Nurse and now focuses mostly on her art business working just 1 day a week as Diabetes Educator Nurse in the community. April loves to use bold colors and clean line work to tell the story of nature and how was as humans connect to it. She is most well known for her trees with exposed roots, a reminder for each of us to expose and celebrate our own roots.
April has learned the joy of ‘letting go’ and exploring through creativity. Painting has helped her to personally express emotion and find balance. She feels that not everyone has to be a professional artist but everyone can be creative! She is looking forward to sharing the joy of letting the creative juices flow at Ublossom!

Workshop

 Letting Go and Grabbing Hold with Art

Let’s let the creativity flow. Let’s use art to help us let go of that ‘baggage’ we simply don’t need and help us connect with what is truly important. We will start with abstract work to explore color, movement, play and letting go. There are no rules here! We will then focus on what symbolizes what is most important to us and work this into our masterpieces. There will will be time for exploring and play and time to create at least 1 piece to take home. No art experience necessary.
Please wear something that you don’t mind possibly getting paint on and bring a notebook and pen.
