This class will start out working loosely with large, then small brushes on newsprint paper, using thinned paint in layers, then working in details and possibly collage and patterns, images. Then we will transfer the ideas to a slower more methodical structured painting on canvas or paper.
The idea is to pull out your intuitive level and stretch your vocabulary.
Class includes a field trip to the Museum of Northwest Art in LaConner.
Cost: $210.00 and includes most materials.
