Instructor: Michelle Champlin

This fun and exploratory mixed media class gives folks an opportunity to express themselves creatively through drawing, painting, writing and connecting with their intuition. We will be taking inspiration from unique real-world images while learning basic visual art techniques, experimenting with representational and abstract concepts  and using your intuition as a guide. We will also use intuitive free-writing as a part of the process and we will talk about how you could include writing in your visual art if you choose to do so. You get to be the orchestrator here: there is no right or wrong in this class and no prior experience is necessary! 

Materials list:
basic drawing or sketch paper
a basic set of colored pencils
regular pencil (can be drawing pencils or basic No. 2 pencil)
pencil sharpener
