Independent Study

The course is designed for students who would like to develop body of paintings and their own style with help of a professional artist. The instructor is there as a guide to discuss your intentions and to push you gently to help you proceed in your own unique artistic journey. There will be a critique each class to discuss what has been accomplished that day. In the end of course students will be able to develop a personal artistic direction.

*This program requires a minimum of seven (7) registered participants.
