In this playful, innovative art class we explore the mysteries of creativity, useful techniques in learning how to get out of our own way, and secrets of the art making process. As your inner artist loosens up, so does your ability to breathe and flow, to problem solve and think outside of the box. Drawing, painting, mixed media and more, in a relaxed atmosphere where the inner critic is not invited!
