Through a combination of demos, in-class assignments and individual instruction each student will learn techniques to create fresh, deliberate marks. Guided by an artist who has made over 3500 daily, consecutive, paintings (so far) you’ll embrace the painting process while learning tricks to stay inspired and motivated as well as generate ideas for your own daily practice. All levels are welcome.
