Bringing The Masters in Art Alive – Mondays and Wednesday 3-5 PM through Western State Colorado University Extended Studies: Oct 30-Nov 8
Do you love art? Bring it alive through creative discovery. Take a playful, exploratory, multimedia approach to exploring periods, movements, geography, and master artists through making art. Emphasis is on creative expression and discovery. Experience using a variety of art materials and technique while you learn about art history. THIS IS NOT your professors’ art history classes! We take inspiration from master artists and famous artworks, as we create our own masterpieces. Join us for a fast paced course and get your creative juices flowing! Cheri holds a Masters of Art in Curriculum & Instruction with an emphasis in Art Education. $65 includes materials and instruction. LEARN FROM THE MASTERS REGISTRATION
