VIRTUAL - Risk and Courage: Dare to Be You -- Session 1: Steal Like an Artist

Susan Giannantonio

Four Thursday Afternoons

January 6, 13, 20, 27

1:00 - 3:00pm

$120 members/$160 non-members


A non-objective and/or abstract multimedia class, investigating ways to develop your own unique artistic voice.  It is helpful to examine many of the painters who have gone before us to identify exactly what moves and inspires each of us. Join us as we move away from “pretty” paintings and explore a more introspective and sometimes edgy way to paint.

Level: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
