This class is dedicated to the muse and the nature of inspiration.  We are inspired to create art by art itself.  Art that we love, quickens the soul, and the artists that create it, are agents of our muse.  Art that we love gives us a powerful clue to our own aesthetic. It is a mirror, and can guide us toward deeper contact with own inner aesthetic landscape. A landscape and language that we share with the artists that we love. They, and we, are part of the same creative family.  Painting, drawing, mixed media and art appreciation in a playful, non-critical environment.  We will experiment with the art that we love and play with exercises that are designed to open us to the muse. Prerequisite: None  Supply fee $20
