Steps to Greater Creative Confidence
“Learn to let the painting process blend just enough structure with chance to allow for unique, attention-getting and expressive results. Combine fun, energetic and intuitive beginnings into explorations and solutions to discover your own strengths. Daily demonstrations and challenging projects will guide you to claim that elusive ‘next’ level, no matter where you start. We will create multiple ‘mini’s’ to find success sooner, and you’ll build even more confidence with planned problems while learning to resolve them. Get ready for a shift in your painting and break through some barriers!”.
