"Rendering the Invisible Visible for US and Canada"
September 8 - December 15, 2021

Our live online art classes offered via Zoom are a unique mix of art history/theory lectures, painting, and discussions that will help you take your art to the next level. This 12-week workshop has been designed around this pandemic and of course, the stories arising from such a life-mind-altering situation. Do we agree that art is more than the mere representation of the surroundings, so we can finally accept rendering visible the invisible? We are currently reshaping our perceptions, rethinking our behavior to give birth to a new personal narrative. Knowing that creativity comes from everywhere and everything, the purpose of this online course is to help you fully express these new stories, using the painting medium of your choice.
