5 Thursdays, October 6th -November 3rd, 2 - 5 pm

 Art, Courage & Creativity II --- The Series!
 Based upon the popular one day BRIO course with Karen Leeds ("Taking It Further") this new 5 partseries offers longer painting times to more deeply explore composition & feelings. Come relax, revive and reinvent yourself! We use rich, colorful oil pastels, loosening up exercises, and mixed media to gently free us from beliefs and habits that may be holding us back.  All materials are supplied. While there is ample technique taught, the emphasis is on creating original art by intuition, and on learning to recognize and act upon the inner guidance of your own unique voice.  Appropriate for both newcomers and graduates of Karen's other sessions. 

        COST:                     $160  +$10 supply fee each session ($50)
