Session #?- Abstract Masterpieces
"Abstract Masterpieces," is a recurring 8-week session featuring super creative, inspiring, and conceptual weekly activities that culminate in an expressive wall-worthy abstract art piece.
This particular session will focus on the study of symmetry, pattern, and texture found in nature and how these art principles and elements can be represented in a conceptual way.
Abstract art is an amazing way to get you thinking outside the crayon box and really channeling your inner artist!
