Whatever subject matter you like to draw or paint - spinning will free your subconscious abilities! Spinning refers to turning the paper, canvas, metal, wood or other surface at 90 degree angles while applying the oil, acrylic, watercolor, pencil, charcoal or other medium.

Artists’ fine line markers are not just for careful detail work – they’re also great for quick sketches. With the addition of color – with colored pens, a few colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pastels or watercolors – you can create fresh and lively frameable art or fill a journal. Forget erasing and fixing things, just loosen up and have fun drawing! (Weather permitting, this class will draw outside too.)
