Course Description

IN PERSON: This in-studio course introduces a variety of projects that provide an introduction to multiple mediums. We will explore many different art forms to reveal the natural creative instincts you already possess. Using your intuition, with the help of an encouraging instructor, you will explore the "fun-damentals" of art. The goal of this course is to find a medium that speaks to you. You'll get hands-on help with handling a brush, shaping paper designs and learning art vocabulary, as well as learning what to look for in a piece and how to talk about it. The concepts and collaboration on ideas, blended together in a safe environment, are integral to the learning process and to feeling comfortable expressing yourself creatively. This course is for both trying new things and exploring the world of art without an expectation of a particular result, to allow you to experience the process and see what you hold inside as a creator. Beginners to advanced artists are welcome. | Active Skill Learning.
