Join Nadine LaFond for a series of classes concentrating on total experimentation for the purpose of empowering expression.

Perfect for trying out a new medium or digging deeper into a current discipline, this series aims to sharpen the tools of current visual artists as well as introduce to non-visual artists some foundational techniques on image making.

By the end of the course, students will be able to create their own meaningful imagery with simple materials, an understanding of visual language and a wide open imagination.
