Class Description  
These dynamic and fluid mediums will lead you on an exciting journey in this class. Not only will you learn basic skills in watercolor, acrylic and mixed media, but how to utilize the paint and explore additives and tools used to manipulate surfaces for interesting applications. We will discuss color theory and compositional structure as we conduct small material experiments and then carry them into our paintings. If you are looking to loosen up, and find your inner improvisational artist within, take this class with Ashley of paint and innovative strategies.
