Let's play and explore!  In this class we will learn how to step into the right side of our brain and play.  We will begin by making a visual inspiration board and start exploring what lights us up! Then we will use mark making, collage, posca pens and acrylic paint to create.  This class is for everyone, no experience needed.

Still Life Saturdays
10-11:30 am
January 7-March 25, 2023


What a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning in the dark of winter. We will learn about value and how to simplify shapes. Slowly introducing color into our palette and working with uncomplicated still lifes.  For this class you will need a phone or camera to take photos and a great attitude! I am not about perfection or realism.  I love experimenting and learning, Beginners welcome.

My 12 year old has taken both in person and online classes with Katie. She looks forward to them each week, wishes she could take a class several times per week and practices what she learns. Katie's teaching style is relaxed, fun and engaging. I recommend taking a class from her. It is well worth the price.
