Is there a place that is very special to you, or that you are in complete awe of? Maybe it is the colors, or a setting, or the ambiance - whatever it is, that will be the starting point. In this workshop, you will work from this inspiration to create four small pieces that begin by focusing on color. Working in a series, you will explore composition in an abstract way, as well as visual texture.

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid wearing such products to class.
Thank you!
