Mondays 6:30-8:30pm:  June 18, 25, July 2, 9, 16, 23 (6 weeks)

Instructors: Ashley Dequilla and Genevieve DeLeon

Join us for a six-week class offering approaches to painting and drawing the body that do not rely on the gendered gaze typical of traditional figure painting. Students will explore techniques such as collage and abstraction in conjunction with meditation and bodily awareness to increase confidence in intuitive art-making and encourage unique explorations of the figure. Built on an understanding of art as a mental wellness tool, the class will double as an informal support group, encouraging community building and open and safe discussion of the body within art and society.  The class will include site visits to a local museum and will culminate in a showcase of student and instructor work. $100/student (includes supplies)
