The class will include an ongoing critique, "how-to" demos, and tutorials designed for each individual student's natural way with paint. Students will learn about "notans" and planning planning before putting brush to canvas. All "work" is planned before so the actual fun of painting can show results. Composition and design are also handled before the mark making begins.

The fast, loose abstract stye is made with large broad mark making.
