Students of all ages and skill levels will be encouraged to step "out of the box" and paint from their imagination and emotions. Learn the basic elements of design, options available in mediums, methods of application, colors, blending, and more. Techniques will vary from beginner to advanced based on each student's painting experience. Visual and text references will be available to guide students as they begin their abstract journeys. Varied mediums, specialty tools, assorted brushes, and special paint colors will be provided for students to use during class.
