One Subject, Many Interpretations


with Sharon Rubinstein

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 7, 2024 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week
1 additional session on Mar 14, 2024

Experiment and see how a single object can be depicted in many ways! Exploration, artistic growth, fun - these are the goals of this class. We will concentrate on a single subject (with several available as choices) across multiple class meetings. Each session will focus on a different material and approach, but the same subject matter! The saying "A rose is a rose is a rose" is true - but they surely can look different. Find out, and expand your artistic imagination and capacity across media. Register for just a few weeks, or sign up for all five and save 10% with promo code FIVE. This class is for adults and mature teens of all skill levels, and all materials are included.
