Art Lessons for Adults

Adult lessons include one-on-one guidance to help artists solve technical and/or conceptual problems in their work and will bring a fresh start to the creative process. The goal is to encourage the voice and vision of individual artists to support the creation of work that pushes the boundaries of their work.

Together we will explore how artists today incorporate the diverse elements of mediums into their work, and the ways in which you can best translate your own work using your chosen medium as well as exploring new ones. Each participant will have a chance to explore techniques that will enrich their work and practice, including printmaking techniques, painting, inks and various drawing and mark making mediums.
