Start where you are and learn new skills, practice techniques and gain confidence in expressing your ideas. With emphasis on self-expression, and finding your inner passion we will explore contemporary topics in a variety of media. Each class will be inspired by the work of a contemporary artist with emphasis on inclusive representation (gender, culture, etc.) Each class will focus on specific skills through a directed exercise, followed by a student inspired project in a variety of media: pencil, ink, pastel, mixed media, watercolour, and acrylics. Field trip to an Art Gallery included.
