Layers upon layers, that's our comfort zone. But what happens when you purposely do less? The Art of Restraint is all about being restrained yet intentional with our focus. We'll study power of the elements of art (color, line, shape, and texture) to tell our stories. We'll make numerous studies in our journals, and then we'll move to making small paintings on watercolor paper. Part art history, part concept, part process... this class will change the way you think about your work. Artistic growth, here we come!
