Coming Soon!

A painting, at its core, is the creative act of the individual. All other concerns, whether it be technique or talent, are secondary to your own voice and commitment to your individual vision. Through discussion, demo’s and practical application, we will focus on making abstract paintings by lessening the separation between who you are and what you create by stressing the importance of the individual in producing unique singularities.
