“Oh, I can’t draw a stick figure to save my life!”
= MISUNDERSTANDING. Some of the history’s most distinctive and evocative works have been created by untrained artists “Outsider Artists”.  We will use “Outsider Art” as a premise in this 4-week class. We will explore and capitalize on your natural hand and your life’s wisdom to transform the stigma of self-loathing into self-loving! Being and expressing you is what makes ART: Affective, Relevant, Timeless.
