Use this 3 week mini class to reenergize your creative spirit. During this unusual and difficult time in our lives using our artistic skills is a way of coping and also finding a new means of expression and moving forward.

This course offers an “assignment” that is open ended and will provide structure for art students to use any media of their choice. The actual work will be done during “non class” time at each student’s convenience.

Week 1 will consist of an introduction by the teacher along with source material from other artists. Weeks 2 and 3 will be group critiques of each student’s work.
