From inspiration, to abstraction, to creation
Thursdays 6pm - 8pm
January 24th - February 14th
Non Members $140
Take an idea from inspiration, to abstraction, to creation. This is a four week class, 2 hours each session, where we’ll take an original image, and theme, and then generate ideas for creating. You’ll learn to be a good self-critic (not the destructive kind) and you’ll learn how to describe your ideas, and expand on them
Drawing skills, while they are handy, are not necessary.
You will determine the final shape of your project. Obviously I’ll encourage you to think in terms of textile arts. But, sculpture, paper-crafts, and painting are possible outcomes as well.
