Explore subject matter in a new way! Whether you are drawn to realism or abstraction, this class will demonstrate the interconnection between both. A special focus on women artists will inspire new ways to experiment with the expressive qualities of line, form, color and light, and texture. Work in the medium of your choice (acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, fabric, and drawing mediums). This class includes group and individual critiques, PowerPoint presentations and studio time. Demonstrations will be based on students' interests.
