ONE DAY WORKSHOP
LOCATION: 1005 WELLINGS ROAD
Learn to loosen up and let go of expectations and judgement, art is not always about accurate representation.
Experimental art is a fun series of art making exercises. A playful class of exploring your creativity through painting, mark making, collage and drawing.
