Art School for Girls
Art is Important. Don’t Give Up The Ship!

Fall 2012 – Oct Nov Dec

No prior art experience required!
All skill levels welcome!

In this 11 week art and creativity session, Students will experience, learn, discover and enjoy tuning into their own inner artistic vision and talents.  Several mixed-media-hybrid photo-paintings Patti calls ‘Personal Story Boards’ will be completed. We will focus on contemporary colour studies and various interesting techniques adding feminine, global, pretty and mod elements. This is an ‘Art School for Girls’ after all! 

This course is not about learning ‘how to draw’ - it is about locating your inner creative compass, becoming an ‘Art Pirate’, sailing the seas of artistic freedom and finally, proudly hanging your contemporary, fine art decorative canvases on your walls. 

Each week we will zero in on new ways to bring out your ideas.  We will take a few minutes to discuss famous female Artists, living or dead, who are role models and inspiration to girls around the world.  We will listen to uplifting music while we play.
It will feel amazing to experiment, share ideas and interact in a positive atmosphere.
