This is a high energy class.  I focus on “breaking” rules and finding your own voice.  There is lots of movement and a search for lively, original paintings.  Anything is possible! I am interested in students concerned with process rather than product and students willing to search and understand the excitement of the unknown. All levels are welcome if they are content with no “how-tos.”
