A learning experience for students of all levels who are ready to paint, experiment, and collage original works of art. Cory will leave you with a home assignment that you will bring with you to the July seminar. The first workshop is a must…you may start at any time, but, you will miss valuable information and demonstrations, may take a few sessions to catch up. You must attend all three days.
The curriculum will change with every seminar, though some processes will be repeated for learning purposes. The supply list will be long, but most of the items you probably already have.
