Out of the Box Artistic Creations

August 3, 2015
Nicole Troup by 9:30am, Return by 12:00pm


class-3Did you ever think you could create a painting using tools such as celery, a straw or even sea salt? Or use a paintbrush and charcoal powder to create a charcoal drawing? This class is about thinking outside of the box and creating paintings and drawings using unusual tools and methods. If you like to have fun, stretch your creative imagination and experiment with new tools besides a traditional paintbrush and pencil, then this is the class for you!
