A lively class where you’ll learn to draw and paint abstract portraits through quick studies and warm up exercises. People in this class will depict ourselves as subjects along with the use of photographs and imagination to create your pieces. Tim encourages creative intuition, which helps to keep the work loose and expressive. Experimental materials will be used as well as acrylic paint, watercolor, collage and pastel. The class is open to all levels but some art experience is needed. This class is limited in size.
