9:00 - 4:30

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Journey with me to the sea to explore color, textures, and symbols. We will dive into making our own papers for collaging to use in the finished paintings as well as playing with movement and why we love the sea. We will play and let go, embracing our inner child to enjoy the process of painting. I will show you how to build up layers of papers, paint, and color to release the play within you.

• favorite color acrylic paints
