Enjoy a creative mental break and gain structured art practice in the painting/drawing medium of your choice from the comfort of your home. In our weekly meetings, different images and subject matter will be provided for participants to practice their craft and explore new directions, while also developing their eye, artistic touch, and any other aspects they would like to improve. We will also discuss tips and strategies for developing your own practice plan and improving your practice habits. All backgrounds and experience levels are welcome.
