You Are What You ART! - Abstract Painting Class

We will explore three steps:

  • Playing- Get in touch with your inner child, no judgement, no fear, just play.

(Mark Making with Black Paint, pens, tools etc.)

  • Exploring- Be free to take risks, make changes, adding things you love. (Adding mixed media like news print, Magazine words, and Colors that express your Personality)
  • Clarifying- When you find the things you love, declutter and feature them. (Highlighting the parts that speak to you personaly)


Adults- Beginner to intermediate - Thursday 5-7pm. 6 students per class (due to covid) 6 classes total 185.00 plus materials.

I will provide the 16”x 20” Canvas!
