About Júlia Godoy

Júlia Godoy (b. Goiás, Brasil, 1996) is a Brazilian artist based in Los Angeles, California who works with handmade pigment and paint made from foraged natural materials. She collects bones, ash, plants, soil, and insects from her direct surroundings in order to process them into pigment by hand using a mortar and pestle. Her pigments serve as a link to connect physical land to intangible memory, and her work is centered around her experiences as a Brazilian immigrant. In addition, Júlia's artwork surveys her dreams, forms of communication, and human interrelatedness. She believes the physical materials she works with hold a memory of their own, and she has become fascinated with how fragments of their recollections echo throughout her paintings.

Objective

Join local artist Júlia Godoy for this intimate natural paint making workshop. You will learn the secrets of creating one-of-a-kind watercolor paints using natural materials foraged from the Los Angeles mountains. You will gain an understanding of the meditative ancient technique of mulling paint by hand and will curate your own 3D printed watercolor paint palette in this 3.5 hour workshop. We will conclude with an intuitive painting class where Júlia will guide you through traditional watercolor painting techniques and basic color theory. You will be provided with a one-of-a-kind paint palette. This palette will serve as a reminder of your transformative experience and will be yours to keep. Come and immerse yourself in the joy of natural pigments and the freedom it offers!
