This 3 week class is for painters that have a little experience and want to loosen their work up using intuition rather than just copying directly from a photograph.  We will plan out our designs, values and color choices prior to the final painting. This class is meant to be FUN and dare to have some not very perfect outcomes.The class warm up exercises and end product is a stepping stone to incorporate some new tools into your work. Join the class and come with an open mind and a sense of humor.
