January classes begin on January 4. Students will be expressing themselves in acrylic paint on canvas this month, as well as working in some other mixed media pieces. We will be discussing some concepts from the Expressionism movement. Artists who contributed to the concept of Expressionism like
Paul Klee, Marc Franz, and Edvard Munch will be included as we focus on understanding and discussing these abstract art forms.
