Lets let go, take risks, and trust the process. In this class you will be introduced to various water media (watercolor paint, graphite, water-soluble crayons and pencils), using basic drawing techniques to push and pull your imagery and layer the content. Then, we will add collage elements, stencils, tape, and even deconstruction. The focus is on pattern, image, and color. So bring an open mind, your willingness to experiment, and items of inspiration (photos, magazine pictures, sketchbook, memories).

Wednesdays, October 2 - 30 (skips October 9) | 10 am - 12:30 pm - | $180 -a $40 art supply fee is included and is not refundable if you cancel less than 48 hours in advance of the first class | REGISTER HERE
