Learn to create a consistent and individualized body of work through workshop-style instruction and creative prompts.

   • Learn to take a common theme and apply it to a variety of compositional approaches to develop your own series of self-reflective paintings.
   • Features 20 step-by-step projects with painting and mixed media. Build intuitive art from scratch and learn to experiment with texture, color and even how to create painting surfaces with power tools.
