Course Description


Artwork by Matt Tanzi

This course is for newcomers and experienced painters alike! Together we will observe the ways that painters from the 20th and 21st centuries have used painting as a storytelling device. We will then take this understanding into a self-directed studio session where your voice takes precedence. Everybody has a story to tell. How will you share yours?
