What you can expect:

Fast and fun drawing exercises, step by step painting instruction and lots of demonstrations and discussion about design. We will work in layers on our paintings, adding color and energy to each layer, often spinning the canvas, spattering and dripping!

We will play with the vibration of colors against each other, such as brights against neutral tones and we will place complimentary colors next to each other in our drawing and painting as well. And finally, we will bring our paintings to a finish by organizing our background and foreground areas and adding additional drawing, and special small details.

You will enjoy an atmosphere of playful experimentation, encouragement, one-on-one attention and a great group of artists to paint with. There will be music and possible dancing…I can’t wait!
