Each class students will choose a picture to learn the layered colors technique through a variety of strokes that result in a composition with rich hues, shadows and highlights.  The goal is to complete a unique project in each 3 hour session.

We will start with a basic project and the instructor will recommend progressively more challenging projects for each student. It is recommended to attend all 7 sessions but students can attend one session or more if they like or choose to join at any point.  This program is beginner friendly and fun.
