DISCOVERY AMONGST KINDRED SPIRITS

This open group session is focused on being a sharing space. Regular attendees refer to it as a place where kindred spirits spend time creating together, while working on their own projects. This group operates based on the idea that creative experimentation in a supportive environment often stimulates an artist’s inspiration, and helps empower ideas as well as the successful acquisition and adaptation of new techniques. Water-media and mixed media collage have been recent avenues of exploration.

SCHEDULE

THURSDAYS from 12:00 – 3:00 

Location – Downstairs: CLASSROOM 1 in The Red House.

All mediums are welcome.
