We will explore several unique methods of creating non-representational designs that will provide you many ideas for your future paintings. Our goals are to emphasize bold shapes and values, color and texture using multimedia and collage.  You may work on canvas or paper, at least 9 x 12” but preferably larger. Homework will be suggested but not required.  Please see unique supply list for these 4 classes, below.

Note: Please note that registration will close October 13 at noon central time. Please register early.
