Frequently asked questions:
*What is "group class"? It consists of a two- and half-hour class of up to 7 students. Even in a group class I help you individually based on your leve, medium and area of interest. You can work on a project you would like to work on (painting, drawing, pastel, collage, etc.) and I will guide you through the process with instruction, tips, my input, and positive critiques.
*What is an "open studio" class?....... You will bring a project you would like to work on (painting, drawing, pastel, collage, etc.) and I will guide you through the process with tips, my input, and positive critiques.
