Description

STARTS Wednesday, July 6th!

Have you ever wondered how or why artists choose the same colors, shapes, textures, symbols or images to work with over and over again? They are using a visual language to express their ideas, emotions, experiences and to communicate with the viewer/audience/world. In this course each artist will go through a number of exercises to find their own unique visual language. Grab the art supplies and you love and come join us!

This is an adult course, but teens are welcome to participate as well. Children under 13 may accompany an adult taking the course or be accompanied by an adult.

COST: BY DONATION (students have been paying anywhere from $5 – $50 per class which comes out to $20-$200 for the whole course.) Please pay what matches your financial means and needs, even if you cannot afford to pay.

DATES: We will meet Wednesdays July 6, 13, 20, 27 AND August 3, 10, 17, 24 (no class on Aug. 30) 

**NOTE – This course will be running 8 weeks in July + August. You can choose to sign up for either month or both. PLEASE ADJUST YOUR PAYMENT ACCORDINGLY. You will receive all 8 classes (live and recorded) no matter what as well as a BONUS of access links to live + recorded Wednesday class and YOU get to choose when you want to join us. 

Each class will be recorded that day and the link to view it will be sent along with the notes from the class each week. Recorded classes are only available to those who register for the class so we can keep a safe and nurturing space for those to express themselves.

SUPPLIES:  YOU GET TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT TO WORK WITH (this is not a techniques class) PLEASE WORK WITH A MEDIA YOU ARE COMFORTABLE USING.
